Staff Picks

When Aidan Became a Brother

Aidan, a transgender boy, experiences complicated emotions as he and his parents prepare for the arrival of a new baby.


Eleven-year-old Rick Ramsey has generally gone along with everybody, even though he is increasingly uncomfortable with his father's jokes about girls, and his best friend's explicit talk about sex; but now he discovers the Rainbow Spectrum club, where kids of many genders and identities can express themselves.

The Girls I've Been

When seventeen-year-old Nora O'Malley, the daughter of a con artist, is taken hostage in a bank heist, every secret she is keeping close begins to unravel.

Love & Other Disasters

After announcing their pronouns on national television, London Parker has enough on their mind without worrying about the klutzy competitor stationed in front of them. They're there to prove the trolls--including a fellow contestant and their dad--wrong, and falling in love was never part of the plan.

And They Lived. . .

Chase Arthur is a budding animator and hopeless romantic obsessed with Disney films and finding his true love, but he's plagued with the belief that he's not enough for anyone: he's recovering from an eating disorder and suffers from body dysmorphia fueled by his father, and can't quite figure out his gender identity.

This modern dictionary provides an in-depth look at queer language, from terms influenced by celebrated lesbian poet Sappho and from New York's underground queer ball culture in the 1980s to today's celebration of RuPaul's Drag Race.
