H4202: LGBTQ Teen Literature in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Young adult, or "teen", literature has existed for centuries, but only since the 1950s and -60s has it developed as a specific area of literature. Young adult literature containing LGTBQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer~questioning) characters and themes has been around for just as long, but only in the last twenty years has it really exploded as an area of young adult literature. Come and discuss books mostly new but some not so new, their importance in a social and political context, their relevance to the gay rights movement as a whole, and their relevance on an individual level.
