LGBTQA MG and YA Lit in Translation

These are MG and YA books originally published in English that are or will be available in other languages.

Please note that these are organized by language, not territory. Publisher names are in parentheses.

(Caveat: I have not read any of these translations, and cannot speak to whether the queer storylines have been modified, as unfortunately certain countries are particularly wont to do. If you know of a title listed here that has been stripped of its queer content, please leave a comment to that effect.)

(US) = a link to that edition on American Amazon (via affiliate link) or on BN.com

This will be a regularly updated resource, so if you are an author whose book has been internationally translated, please get in touch or comment below to have your book added! (Or make any corrections as needed.)
