Snapshots of LGBTQ Kid Lit

Hi everyone!

I am writing a book about LGBTQ* children’s picture books that’s undercontract with the University Press of Mississippi. My focus is on post-2000 publications, but I am creating, reading, and analyzing an archive of English language books that explore LGBTQ* themes beginning with Jane Severance’s 1979 publication, When Megan Went Away.

I’ll be publishing “mini” reviews (100 – 150 words) on my blog, RaiseThemRighteous, under “Snapshots of LGBTQ Kid Lit.”

Please, feel free to send book recommendations, share publishing experiences, or let me know about your upcoming work! You can email me at

Take care,

Jennifer @ RaiseThemRighteous

  1. I am so glad you are going to reading and reviewing LGBT books! I’ve looked for lists and haven’t found much. Thank you!


    • I hope you are enjoying the reviews! A lot of older titles are pretty inexpensive on Amazon (used). I’m having so much fun with the project. Is there anything specific you are looking for in a book? I’d love to play matchmaker.
