Out on the Shelves - Rainbow Books

Out on the Shelves is an online reading resource that connects rainbow young people with the stories that represent them. 

On the website young people can find lists of books with rainbow themes and characters. 

Out on the Shelves is run by InsideOUT, a national charity with the vision for all young people of minority sexualities, genders and sex characteristics in Aotearoa New Zealand to have a sense of belonging and safety in their schools and communities
