**bragging alert**       **bragging alert**       **bragging alert**

I've been superpleased by how Gay America has been recognized lately on a bunch of lists

Let's review, shall we?

Then it got onto the 2009 Rainbow List organized by the American Library Association's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Round Table and Social Responsibilities Round Table.

Then it got listed on the New York Public Library's Stuff for the Teen Age 2009, "the multi-format, multimedia, targeted, and teen-tested update" to their Books of the Teen Age annual list.

Then it made an appearance on CCBC Choices 2009, the annual best-of-the-year list of the august Cooperative Children's Book Center, a library of the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

And finally, I just found out that it's been named one of three finalists for the Randy Shilts Award for Gay Nonfiction, presented by the Publishing Triangle. 

I so want that. 

Huzzah, Gay America!!
