June is Pride Month, so I'm pleased to bring you The New Queer
Conscience, a 2021 Sydney Taylor Notable Book in the Young Adult
category. It's a manifesto by young activist Adam Eli, that holds
up k'lal yisrael, or Jewish solidarity, as a model for the queer
community to emulate.
For queer kidlit with identifiably Jewish characters, see the Diverse Jewish Kidlit section of The Book of Life. Look for the tag LGBT. You'll find about 30 titles. If you know of any books I've missed, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking of solidarity, it's always a good time to push back against ongoing antisemitism. Please click on the tab labelled JUSTICE at The Book of Life to find resources that will help you do just that.
