LGBTQIAP+ Books By and About People who Identify as LGBTQIAP+

This is very obviously a work in progress and a massively incomplete list, but if you’re looking for books both by and about people who openly identify as LGBTQIAP+, voila. This list was compiled entirely of people who either consented to be on it or are very publicly out (e.g. in their official author bio), but if you’re on this list and don’t want to be, let me know and I’ll take it/you down ASAP. (Yes, even if you already consented; I promise it’s okay to change your mind!) If you just want me to change how your book is labeled, let me know that too.

(Of course, there is a much larger list of recommended QUILTBAG books on my blog here, but as I know a number of people are hesitant to read them by hetero-IDing authors, this is for that.)

Middle Grade

Young Adult

Female MCs

Male MCs

Trans, Non-Binary, Genderqueer, Genderfluid, and/or Agender MCs


*Also has other books featuring main characters with other queer identities

  1. Thank you so much for this list! It’s incredibly helpful and a great resource to turn to!

  2. Thank you for the list. I hope one day to write a book in one of the above categories…. so thought I’d press this for future reference.
