RAINBOW BOOK LIST 2014

 

The Rainbow Project, a product of the ALA Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) and Social Responsibilities Round Table (SSRT), proudly announces the 2014 Rainbow Book List.  The Rainbow Book List is a bibliography of books with significant gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content, and which are aimed at youth, birth through age 18. The list is intended to aid youth in selecting high-quality books which were published between July 2012 and December 2013.  The list also is intended to aid as a collection development or reader’s advisory tool for librarians serving children and young adults.

The committee members evaluated over 150 books from small, independent, and large publishers, and selected thirty books from 25 publishers for the 2014 Rainbow List. Among the 150 books evaluated by the committee, committee members noted an increase in the number of graphic novels. The number of teen fiction titles has also increased, and teen fiction comprises 70% of the 2014 list. However, there has been a significant decline in juvenile fiction (only one title appropriate for the list) and no picture books. As in previous years, non-fiction for any age, including memoirs and history so vital to tying a culture together, remains sparse.

Titles noted with an asterisk (*) are a Top Ten Title.

I am thrilled beyond words to have made the Rainbow List Top Ten Books among so many wonderful authors and their works! Congrats to all! Now I need to go compose myself 🙂

Wow. Thanks so much for bringing my workbook to the young adult readers. I’m honored. xox Kate

Thank you so much for including my novel Leap on this list. I am truly honored.

Wonderful, wonderful list! Should be required purchases for school libraries (and public libraries of course) everywhere!

I agree. That is actually why I am reading this! I’m writing a list of LGTBQ YA books for schools and libraries in order to promote equality and acceptance.

I also agree with you, I think schools and libraries should be required to have these books on their shelves. I feel like it would benefit not only students but faculty as well. If we had more exposure to LGBTQ in the world, I think students would be nicer to their classmates, parents, and staff could be help their students/children through this transition and better understand them. I think bullying rates would go down, and kids could be more successful in life. The more comfortable a kid is the better they will succeed all around in life.

I’m so honored to see FREAKBOY on this list – thank you!
Mostly, I’m just grateful to all involved that this extremely important list exists in the world!

FAT ANGIE is living large in the best possibly way because of the ALA. Thank you so much! Rock the word & empower young people to dream big!

Having read and/or head about many of these books, I was very excited to see the 2014 rainbow book list. It really encouraged me to look for a 2016 list. I truly love the fact that there are books that the younger LGBTQ community can relate to. Growing up everyone wants to feel excepted and to feel as though they are not an “outsider”. I commend all the people that write these books and work hard to set positive images of the LGBTQ community. Whether people realize it or not, simple things like literature that these young people can relate too helps not only reach and comfort them but save many lives also. Please keep up the great work!

I am really excited that there are so many books and resources out here for LBGT people. I am a proud supporter and shared this website with a friend who is gay but don’t know how to come out. Hopefully, he will read some books on this website and it will give him the courage to. Also congratulatinos to anyone who made the list.

I think this list is a wonderful thing for not only teens but adults as well. It is nice to have access to books that you can’t find in a local public library or even a school library. Kids are becoming for comfortable with themselves and expressing how they’re feeling I think this is a wonderful resource. I can’t wait to check out some of these books.

This site is very great, its so full of wonderful information about books that only pertain to this subject. I wish I knew about this when I was in school.I want to give this information to students in my classroom who are looking for great reads such as these

This is such a colorful list of novels, and I agree that these should be read by all individuals so all individuals can be aware. I believe that half the battle is the uninformed people fighting against something that makes them uncomfortable. A list of this sort helps young people, and adults to feel their expressions and accept themselves and others. This list continuing on is important for individuals, within the group or not, to spread awareness and knowledge and to bring people together through ideals, thoughts or lifestyles.

As a future teacher, this is a great list of books. While reading through the list, I found myself wanting to get some of the books for my own reading pleasure! This is a great way to expose kids to the LGBTQ community but also different religions and cultures. I applaud the Rainbow Project for making this list and all the authors who explored with different topics who made it on to this list. I will be tucking this away for safe keeping – for myself, and my future students!

Would love to read upon Rapture Practice as well as The pink Triangle. Books seem interesting to learn more about how people live in their situations and bloom and become the person they want to be with more confiednece in love since the beginning.

This is such an amazing list of books that covers so many different aspects of growing up LGBT. I’m especially excited to see Alex London’s book Proxy. I wish I had access to this selection of YA literature when I was growing up in small town Indiana. Everyone wants to see themselves represented in the books that they’re reading. It makes them feel not so alone. These books are saving lives.

Great Article…. This is inspiring for a young person growing up in LBGT community and need books to look for.

It is so great to see a lot of books with the overall theme of LGBTQ. When I was in primary and secondary school I never saw any books with topics surrounding this aspect. I hope as our society is becoming more accepting more LGTBQ books will be incorporated into school curriculum or on reading lists for students! There are a few on this list I would love to read. Once I become a teacher, I will definitely have a selection of books like these in my classroom library for my students.

The Rainbow List is a fantastic idea to create a list of books with significant gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content aimed at youth. I think that this will positively impact all who chose to read these books. It will be nice for others to feel represented in these books because so many do not have significant gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content. I think these books will also be a tool to help those who are ignorant to the LGBTQ community and their rights. AS a future teacher, I hope to share these books with my students one day. This is fantastic!
