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.


The list so far:

    The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner
    Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
    The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan
    Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan
    Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
    Will Grayson & Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Greene
