Children Need LGBTQ+ Stories... So I Wrote One
For my Honors Project, I decided to write and illustrate an LGBTQ+ positive children’s book. I chose to pursue this project because, though changes are slowly being made for the better, children’s media lacks positive, intersectional LGBTQ+ representation. I created the story I never had as a child by combining elements of creative writing and illustration. In my presentation, I will discuss my process in the creation of my book as well as the importance of positive representation in children’s media.
