LGBTQ+ inclusive books for children and young people

Browse our list of LGBTQ+ inclusive books

Welcome to the Stonewall Book List for schools, colleges, parents, and carers. We’ve hand-selected a wide range of LGBTQ-inclusive books for children and young people to enjoy. Since we first released our book lists, there has been enormous growth in LGBTQ-inclusive children’s and young adult literature, which is wonderful to see!

We hope you and the children in your life enjoy the books from this list. As with any resources for children and young people, do make sure you check them first to ensure they suit the child or young person’s abilities and needs.

This is an ever-growing list so please do check in for updates from time to time. We are always keen to hear if you’ve read a fantastic LGBTQ-inclusive book for children and/or young people that isn’t yet on the list - please let us know by emailing

Happy reading!
