Sex & The LGBT YA Novelist — Guest Post Comments (0)

Guest post by young-adult novelist Brent Hartinger, whose Three Truths and a Lie comes out tomorrow!—Matt

Boy, what a difference thirteen years make.

In 2003, I published my first LGBT YA novel, Geography Club. It opens with a closeted gay boy being confronted by all the hot naked jocks in the locker room. That was considered shocking at the time.

This summer, I'm releasing a new LGBT YA novel, Three Truths and a Lie. It includes a scene of two 81drs15B6wL teenage boys having sex while listening to the straight guy have sex with his girlfriend in the room next door. That same straight guy has spent the day flirting with the gay guys.

In other words, if I ever need to remind myself how much the world has changed for LGBT folks in the last few decades, all I have to do is think about the difference between my two books.

Back in 2003, no one except my editor at HarperCollins expected Geography Club to do anything at all.

A week after publication, it had already gone into a third printing. It also eventually ended up being adapted as a feature film (co-starring Scott Bakula).

But the book was also very controversial. It was banned and challenged at libraries all across the country.

And while I tried really hard to make Geography Club fun and funny, it was still a book about the struggles of being an LGBT teenager: how it sucked to be bullied, among other things.
