What's the latest and greatest in non‐fiction books about queer identity and life for queer young adults who lack community/information? Online community referrals welcome too. Should be bi-positive and Latinx competent. Thanks!

¡Hola Papi!: How to Come Out in a Walmart Parking Lot and Other Life Lessons Elevator pitch from the link: "LGBTQ advice columnist John Paul Brammer writes a “wise and charming” (David Sedaris) memoir-in-essays chronicling his journey from a queer, mixed-race kid in America’s heartland to becoming the “Chicano Carrie Bradshaw” of his generation."

not sure if you want books specifically by/about Latinx people so feel free to ignore but Juno Dawson has written a couple of good 101 guides for teens (This Book is Gay and What's the T). She also has a memoir called The Gender Games.
