Warning: amateurishly laid out site, however that does not diminish the value of the title's listed. Your Mr.Wonderful has read more books on this particular list than any of the others.

The Publishing Triangle
The 100 Best Gay and Lesbian Books Ever
"The books were chosen by an all-star panel of lesbian and gay writers ... the queer answer to every boring straight book list that's ever been selected." Your Mr. Wonderful includes this so he is not accused of 'censorship'.
I suggest if you notice friend's or acquaintances paying just a little too much attention to any of the books on this list and that if they are also male, you trust them to babysit your daughters, but not your sons. And if they are female, you are obligated tell them to lose weight, shave their pits, use defoliant on their upper lip, regularly apply deodorant, learn how to put on makeup and then learn to smile.
