National Student Council 2021 Book Recommendations
GLSEN’s National Student Council put together a list of books that are focused on diverse stories and LGBTQ+ characters. While this booklist showcases many LGBTQ+ Authors, not all of them may be part of the community, and instead, show solidarity through highlighting LGBTQ+ stories and characters. These lists have been divided by grades, however, the books can be enjoyed by anyone. We hope this helps educators, libraries, and book clubs incorporate more LGBTQ+ stories in their collections. Please be mindful that some of the books may address heavy topics.
Disclaimer: GLSEN’s National Student Council has provided content warnings for books below the following line. These warnings may include some potentially triggering words. They are created to the best of our abilities as students, but they are by no means exhaustive. We hope they help you make more informed decisions in choosing literature!
