Pride 2021: Teen Reads featuring Gay or Lesbian protagonists
Created by Anna_LibraryT | 43 items
Novels and graphic novels featuring gay and/or lesbian protagonists. Sometimes their orientation is a key plot point, sometimes (refreshingly) it's only an incidental detail. Not all are coming-out stories or enduring-homophobia stories, and tone ranges from serious drama to comedy to romance, with some fantasy, sci-fi, and thrillers sprinkled in! Note: many of these titles are also available as eBooks, audiobooks, or downloadable audiobooks. Click on the author's name to see what's available!
