The Full Spectrum

The Full Spectrum:
A New Generation of Writing about Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, 
Transgender, Questioning, and Other Identities
4 scoops

This collection, edited by the wonderful David Levithan and Billy Merrell, is comprised of prose and poetry by authors who, as of publication in 2005, were under the age of 23.  Some of the writing is clunky, but all of the pieces are earnest, engaging, and well worth reading. There is an old blog about the project. And a portion of the proceeds from the book sales goes to GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
