As both a young adult queer author and as someone who has worked in a library for over ten years, I have seen the drive for more representation in books from both sides of the shelves. However, there are certainly still gaps and more work to be done. In this presentation, I will talk about what it’s like to be a queer author writing in the current climate of publishing. I will also offer resources for finding queer books, and give my recommendations for young adult and children’s books that cover the length of the LGBTQ+ spectrum.
