13 Teen Books Featuring LGBT Characters and Experiences

Books that ask questions about sexuality, gender and identity

There's now a wide range of books out there that explore sexuality, gender and identity, and we've enlisted the help of LGBT Youth Scotland and their Twitter followers to come up with a selection to get you started. In some of the titles, sexuality is a source of conflict; in others, it's more incidental and less consequential in the story. We hope you enjoy this fascinating selection of books!
