2013 Rainbow Books

The Rainbow Book List is a joint project of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) and the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) of the American Library Association (ALA). The Rainbow Book List presents an annual bibliography of quality books with significant and authentic GLBTQ content, which are recommended for people 18 years and younger.

The committee evaluated over 150 books published between July 2011 and December 2012, aimed at youth, birth through 18. Forty-nine books from 31 publishers were selected for the 2013 Rainbow List. Small, independent, and large publishers as well as self-published authors were selected, with genres ranging from science fictions to gritty short stories, realistic fiction to graphic novels, and even a picture book about bending gender roles.

GLBTRT is committed to encouraging and supporting the free and necessary access to all information, as reflected by the missions of the American Library Association and democratic institutions. The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table of the American Library Association is committeed to serving the information needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and the need for information and access for individuals at large.
