I posted this list on the discussion forum for the other class and wanted to share it with you all too. Some of the students in the other class have been discussing using literature to address gay/lesbian/transgender topics in the classroom.

Here are some examples of Young Adult Literature on this topic. All of these books are award winners.

Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden
Rainbow Boys by Alex Sanchez
Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
Luna by Julie Anne Peters
Totally Joe by James Howe
What Happened to Mr. Forster by Gary W. Bargar
Baby Be-Bop by Francesca Lia Block
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Athletic Shorts by Chris Crutcher
Jack by A.M. Homes
The Misfits by James Howe
The Arizona Kid by Ron Koertge
Rainbow High by Alex Sanchez
Rainbow Road by Alex Sanchez

Here are some Children's Literature books. Again these are all award winners as well.

Heather Has Two Mommies by Leslea Newman
Daddy's Roommate by Michael Willhoite
Jack and Jim by Kitty Crowther
And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson

I hope that this helps!
