Books About Gender Non-Conformity for Youth

For gender non-conforming children and teens, or those who don't quite fit in the boy/girl binary: it can be hard to find role models or language to express their identity or feelings. Many of the books in this list are written by authors and/or include characters who identify as non-binary, gender non-conforming, or transgender. Many also provide tips for parents who want to start an age-appropriate discussion about gender identity and expression.
