Transgender teen and activist Jazz Jennings has been named the Author Ambassador for Penguin Random House’s newly relaunched Read Proud Listen Proud website, “an online resource for kids and teens, as well as their parents, teachers and librarians, to find LGBTQ literature that encourages understanding and acceptance, celebrating everyone for who they are through the power of storytelling.”

Read Proud Listen Proud has a recommended reading list of novels about the LGBTQ experience including Jazz Jennings’ memoir, Being Jazz: My Life as a (Transgender) Teen, videos, interviews, and more. The site also features a short video interview with Jazz that follows her as she records the audiobook version of her story.
