Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide for Teens

Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide for Teens Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teen life is hard enough with all of the pressures kids face, but for teens who are LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender), its even harder. When do you decide to come out? To whom? Will your friends accept you? And how on earth do you meet people to date? Queer is a humorous, engaging, and honest guide that helps LGBT teens come out to friends and family, navigate their new LGBT social life, figure out if a crush is also queer, and rise up against bigotry and homophobia. Queer also includes personal stories from the authors and sidebars on queer history. Its a must-read for any teen who thinks they might be queer—or knows someone who is.

Review:

"Divided into sections about coming out, homophobia, what it means to be queer, dating, and sex, this guidebook offers upfront advice and information for teens who think they may be (or know they are) lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. The authors are equally open in asides drawn from their own experience (including disastrous dates and coming out to parents and friends), and additional sidebars explore LGBT pioneers like Harvey Milk and Christine Jorgensen, as well as current topics such as gay athletes and gay marriage. The tone of the book is consistently accessible, pop culture — savvy, and supportive ('Dating can often be awkward and stressful no matter your age sexual orientation.... But as a queer teen, you've got a few more challenges on your plate'). An extensive list of resources, including Web sites, organizations, and books, is included. Ages 14 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
