Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersIt's pride month! I'm gonna re-up my publishing ask for more upper middle-grade / younger YA books that feature kids (esp kids of color) who identify as being on the ltbtqia+ spectrum, THANKS.
This is eternally on my #MSWL. I really want diverse lgbtqia+ middle grade on my client list, especially stories for those queer girl-identifying tweens.
Britni de la Cretaz ⚾️ @britnidlcI dug through hundreds of obituaries & spoke to gay ballplayers from the 1940s up through the 1990s to find the queer history of women in baseball that we stand to lose if it isn't documented. narrative.ly/the-hidden-que…
This piece on the queer women of baseball is brilliant and worth a read to start off #Pride. Also, if anyone's writing a queer take of A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, please send it my way! I'd love to find a F/F historical YA sports project. #MSWL
In honor of the #alayma this morning, here is a #MSWL of the awards I'd love to have a client receive someday. The Schneider Family Book Award and The Stonewall Book Award. Even better if it's in one book! So send me your LGBTQAI+ and disability rep.
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaI get *so* many requests for trans guy books on the LGBTQReads Tumblr and giving the same 10 titles over and over again is getting really sad. If you're a trans guy even thinking about writing an #ownvoices book, I really, really hope you do it.
And when you write it, please send it to me to rep! #mswl
