Our staff team, along with a few amazing and devoted volunteers, has compiled a list of books that we recommend for young readers. These books offer representation of LGBTQ+ characters and experiences, and within the New Direction community we have found them to be helpful for youth who are in the midst of coming out, for queer parents of young children, and for cis, straight parents hoping to expose their children to stories featuring families that look different from their own.
Feel free to browse these books, either by suggested age, or topic. Unfortunately as of yet, we are unaware of many resources like this that are coming from explicitly faith perspectives, but we hope to add more as this changes. All of these books have been found helpful by families and youth in our Generous Space communities, though the contents may not always remain consistent with the views held by New Direction Ministries. New Direction has no control over, nor responsibility for the content or accuracy of the resources.
If you purchase any of the following books through our website, you will be supporting New Direction Ministries via our Amazon Associates Account.
Please be patient as the books load below….
