LGBT Week: June 25th - July 4th
In honor of LGBT Week, here are a few links of interest:
o LGBT Week is hosted by Rae on her blog In the Forest. For the next ten days she will be reviewing books and tempt us with giveaways.
o Author and LGBT rights advocate Malindo Lo wrote a series of posts on Avoinding LGBT Stereotypes in YA Fictions. Whether you're a writer or not, you will be interested in what she has to say. She is thorough.
Malinda's novel, ASH, came out last September, and is described as "Cinderella with a twist". Click here to read the review from Lambda Literary.
o If you're looking for great LGBT YA recommendations, please visit Librarian Daisy Porter's website. What I like the most is how she breaks down the titles in every way imaginable (by author, by ethnicity of characters, genre, etc...)
Have read a great LGBT YA lately? Feel free to share it with us! :)
