9. BOOK: Rainy Day Recess: The Complete Steven’s Comics, David Kelly
David Kelly’s “Steven’s Comics,” a strip syndicated from 1995 to 1998 in various LGBT newspapers nationwide, chronicled a sensitive young boy’s coming of age in the ’70s — a lovable character who inspired our empathy and pride as he played with dolls, dealt with bullying, and crushed on his best friend. A portion of the proceeds from the collection, which includes a moving foreword by Dan Savage, will benefit the It Gets Better Project.
