Ask & Answer: Happy Gay Romances

Over on Tumblr, reallyits-oursnow asked:

Do you have a list of gay romances that have happy endings? (Like Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which I read because of a recommendation on this blog and absolutely loved)

We answered:

Sure! Here are some YA books (not all are strict romances) about gay/lesbian/bisexual characters with happy endings:

Gay boys:

  • Out of the Pocket by Bill Konigsberg
  • Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
  • Chulito by Charles Rice-Gonzalez

Lesbian/bisexual girls:

  • Starting From Here by Lisa Jenn Bigelow
  • Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
  • Ash by Malinda Lo
  • Adaptation and Inheritance by Malinda Lo (two-book series)
  • Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters

Gender unspecified:

  • Brooklyn, Burning by Steve Brezenoff
  • Between You and Me by Marisa Calin

Thanks to Queer YA for several suggestions!
