LGBTQIA+ Children's Books I Recommend!

Updated: Sep 15, 2021

I get asked frequently what children's books I recommend for a variety of reasons. It may be because someone's child has just come out or maybe a teacher has decided to change up their classroom library. Whatever the case may be, feel free to take a look below! All of these books I have read on Boylesque Michigan's live stream show "Learning's A Drag!" - a Family Friendly Drag Show that streams every Saturday morning at 11:30 AM EST! I fell in love with these books and I think you will too. Please keep in mind, while these books are picture books, they can be great for all ages to help start tough conversations.
