Pick one of the following questions to answer: To what extent is Boy Meets Boy successful in imagining a reality for teens in which queerness is normal? How important is it to do this? To what extent does the lack of ethnic diversity take away from the LGBT diversity? What does this book have to offer straight teens? (Or even straight adults?) Is this text written more for cultural insiders (queer teens) or cultural outsiders (anyone else)? What made you think this? Aside from the obvious same-sex coupling, to what extent has the depiction of falling in love changed since the early fairy tales (and through the other decades we have read)? Describe the influence of “labels” and people using labels (or not using labels) to define themselves. At least two characters in BMB use art as a coping mechanism. What is the importance of including different kinds of coping mechanisms in YA novels?
