Welcome to the new YGS Wiki!
We hope this wiki will be a good place for us to share books, movies, local groups, and other resources with each other. Don't forget, if you aren't already subscribing to a YGS List, you can join at the Youth Guardian Services Website.
Also, watch out for Discussion pages. At the top of your screen are tabs that say "article", "discussion", "edit" etc. If the discussion tab is blue, someone has made a comment about that page. Feel free to leave comments.
And remember, "Champion the right to be yourself. Dare to be different. Live your own life. Follow your own star." -Wilfred A Peterson
Literature and Media
It can be really exciting and empowering to read about queer people - plus, it's so fun. :)
Check out our lists of books about GLBTQ characters and themes:
Remember, this is a wiki, so if we're missing a book you can add it! You can also add comments about books on the list. Let us know if you liked them, what kind of issues they included, or whatever you think other people might want to know.
