Originally featured in the 1/26/2018 Scout Report, GayYA continues to be an impressive resource for anyone wanting to keep an eye out for inclusive books written for young adult audiences.
Librarians, educators, youth workers, and parents may be interested in GayYA: "a website and blog dedicated to everything LGBTQIA+ in YA [young adult literature]." This website was launched in 2011 and continues to be regularly updated by a team of dedicated volunteer book-lovers. Perhaps the most useful of these resources is the LGBTQA+ YA Master List, a collection of book recommendation lists organized by category, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. From here, visitors may want to check out the latest blog post on the site's homepage or browse previous blog posts by category, which includes author interview, book review, teen voices, and sneak peek. This blog offers a fabulous way to discover new titles and stay up-to-date on news in the world of YA literature. Accessibly written, this blog may especially appeal to young readers themselves.
