I’m looking for young adult fiction featuring main characters who identify as LGBTQ+. We are looking for all genres as long as it fits those guidelines. The main character should be 14-18 years old (or their race’s equivalent for fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal) for the majority of the story. Romance is welcome, but not a requirement. (And I’d like to have more books without it, to be honest.) In particular, we need more girls and people who don’t identify on the gender binary. (Though we’re certainly happy to get submissions with boys as well.)
The two things I’m especially looking for are main characters who identify as the less represented areas of the LGBTQ+ spectrum and intersectionality. Give me Black, Asian, Latin@, Native, etc. characters who identify as LGBTQ+. Give me characters with mental or physical disabilities who identify as LGBTQ+. Give me asexual, pansexual, genderqueer, non-binary, etc. characters. We are actively looking to increase the diversity of our catalog.
