Hey everyone,

So I am starting a project. I am compiling a list of Young Adult fiction (that includes picture books, middle grade, teen, and everything in between) that contains gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender/intersex/asexual/queer themes. I realize that doesn't cover everything, so please feel free to correct me.

So I need your help, internet. Do you know of any YA/children's books that contain queer themes or characters? Please tell me about them!
What I need from you: Title; Author; Genre (if you know it); Age Group (if you know it); Kind of Queer Content (if you know it).

Please pass this on. I haven't found any list that is comprehensive and accessible enough to be useful. Our youth need it. And I am sure that there are many of us who would find it useful.

Thanks!

    The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner
    Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
