Young Adult LGBTQ
Young adult LGBTQ fiction centers on the realistic experiences of an LGBTQ teen protagonist. As these stories often portray the challenges characters encounter in regards of their homosexuality, they can be considered as part of the “problem” novel genre.
Because of the contemporary, realistic setting, the majority of books also fall within the young adult contemporary fiction category.
Common themes are family dynamics, sexual development, bullying, and others. Important titles in the genre are The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
If you write young adult LGBTQ, explore the subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
