The Importance of LGBT YA Fiction


Well-written and quality LGBT YA books can be used as an invaluable resource for LGBT youth, offering constructive and reaffirming images while addressing sensitive and real-life issues, including homophobia, coming out, talking to parents and family, dealing with social aspects and peer pressure to fit in, and interacting with teachers and friends. They also provide emotional and mental support.
