These are some of our favourite titles — in no particular order of preference (except alphabetical by the author’s surname, of course!) — that feature LGBTQIA+ characters or themes. Of course, there’s way more than just this in our collection. Check the Out On The Shelves booklists for more titles — if you find any that we don’t have, please let us know!

    Great to see this list on here! A couple of suggestions to add – ‘Dare Truth or Promise’by Paula Boock (one of the best NZ YA books ever)and ‘Annie on my Mind’ by Nancy Garden ( a classic, and way better than her other two on the list!).

  2. Thanks for the suggestions – I have added them to the list. Cheers!
