“[I read it] because I find it interesting. I look for queer literature specifically because if I just pick a book at random it seems likely that it will just be about straight/cis people etc.” – Imogen, 16

“They are fun to read because you can actually relate to the character(s).” – Madison, 14.

“It helps me to read about relationships I can relate to, and it helped me come to terms with my sexuality.” – Rosie, 17.

What do you like about LGBTQ lit? What's your perspective?
