It’s time for an LGBTQ-themed Teen book display. It’s got hearts, glitter, rad people, and lots of books from the Stonebook Book Awards and Rainbow Book lists.
Yeah, I got a bit sloppy/lazy with the lettering after all that cutting and pasting. Still, I think it’s a pretty sweet little display. Can you find Anna Paquin and Brooklyn author Jacqueline Woodson in this picture?
You can see Orlando Cruz out to kick your ass, Zachary Quinto who scares the crap out of me on American Horror Story, the glam Justin Vivian Bond, Ellen and Portia, and Anderson Cooper, who has eyes like the sea.
Malinda Lo, author of Ash and other YA novels.
Here we have Wanda Sykes, Frank Ocean, my girl Beth Ditto, James St. James (author of one of my favorite YA books, Freak Show), and Jane Lynch (who I will forever think of as a cocktail waitress on an oil barge).
The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race, getting up, looking sickening, and making them eat it.
Honey Boo Boo Child’s Uncle Poodle (“Ain’t nothing wrong with being a little bit gay), Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Neil Patrick Harris, and Carrie Brownstein, the woman who my boyfriend will be leaving me for shortly.
Hard Times of RJ Berger Actor Paul Iocono and Actor Jim Parsons.
Andrew Rannells, RuPaul (in drag and out), and Lana Wachowski.
Andy Cohen who has eyebrows for days, David Levithan, author of everything that’s good in the world, and George Takei, king of the internet.
Ricky Martin and Amanda Lepore. I don’t know much about clothes, but her hair looks FIERCE.
Hard Love by Ellen Wittlinger and It Gets Better.
The Year They Burned the Books (maybe it’s time for an updated cover on that sucker) and Boyfriends with Girlfriends.
Thanks to all the Twitterbrarians (Tweetbrarians?) that helped me come up with this idea and compile a list of people to include in the display.
What are your favorite books that speak to the LGBTQ experience?
