Five of the hottest LGBT-literary YA stars gathered at The Center in New York a few weeks ago as part of the “Diversity in YA” Tour spearheaded by young adult authors, Malinda Lo and Cindy Pon.

The “Diversity in YA” tour brings together 25 YA and middle-grade authors who have written books featuring characters who are of color or LGBT. Next stop for the tour is San Diego, CA with Paolo Bacigalupi and Holly Black.
