GLBTQ Teen Literature: Is it Out There in Indiana?

By Jennifer Chance Cook


Fiction resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning (GLBTQ) youth are often difficult to find. Many libraries do not make a conscious effort to collect such materials, and some actually make an effort to avoid doing so. This is an extremely troubling pattern, since GLBTQ teens are a group that is desperately in need of strong support from caring adults. This article describes a preliminary study that explored whether such titles are available to Indiana’s teens
