This video sums it all up for me. For years, I thought something was wrong with me and could never understand why people made fun of me. The older I got, the more I realized that it wasn’t me… it was people being not being accepting to the things I love.
In general there should be gay characters in YA because a) surprise, there are gay folks everywhere and b) in my opinion as a father, there’s not a damn thing wrong with my child encountering gay folks in her literature, because see point a)
