LGBT books - May 27th 2011, 05:59 PM

This is probably already a thread in here but I can't find it.

But anyways I was just wondering if anyone knows any good books about teen lesbians or anything about the gay community?

Sugar Rush - Julie Burchill (I think there's also a sequel)
Rainbow Boys, Rainbow High and Rainbow Road - Alex Sanchex

These books are awesome

"Keeping You a Secret" - Julie Ann Peters

Ummm... "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides is actually REALLY good but it's not like 100% LGBT focused, but the main character is (I believe) transgender.


when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

Scars by Cheryl Rainfield. It's about a sexual abuse survivor who cuts herself. I don't mean to give anything away but she's gay.

Parrotfish by Ellen Wittlinger is about a FTM transgendered teen. I read it for my Book Club, it was a quick read, but it was entertaining.


’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the [mome raths] outgrabe.

Am I Blue is a good one. It's a collection of short stories, all about gay and lesbian teens. Another good one is It Gets Better, which is a collection of essay by LGBT teens and adults(and their allies.) Scars is one of my favourite. Annie on my mind is also a good one and I think Tricks by Ellen Hopkins has a transgendered or gay teen in it. I know Impulse by her does, although they are more about other issues faced by teenagers, drugs, depression, suicide, and cutting, than about being gay.


She whispered to her own reflection "I will be strong."

"I am not what has happened to me.I am what I have chosen to become."- Carl Jung

"If ye harm none, do as ye wish."

Sometimes things just happen.

Annie on my Mind. Lesbian love story. Have to read it.



When all your friends have come and gone,
And the sun no longer shines,
And the happiness for which you long is washed away like an ocean's tide,
When all the hard times outweigh the good,
And all your words are misunderstood,
When the day seems lost from the start
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.
