Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people and those that care about them, 50 Ways to Support Gay and Lesbian Equality is a compendium of informative, joyful, practical and poignant essays by well-known experts and leaders, each promoting understanding while suggested simple actions. Issues include:

• Defining terminology (What a tranny? Whats gay baiting?)

• Exploring family issues ("Should I come out to my parents on Thanksgiving?" "How can I support a lesbian couple who want to have children?")

• How to support gay rights around the world

A timely and much-needed guide, 50 Ways demonstrates positive ways for both straight and gay people to respond to everyday discrimination and misunderstandings, bringing the world closer to the true meaning of equality.

A powerful call-to-action series, "Action Guides," was launched with the New York Times bestselling MoveOns 50 Ways to Love Your Country, followed by NCWOs 50 Ways to Improve Womens Lives. The third book in the series—50 Ways to Support Lesbians and Gays—features 50 personal, inspiring essays with "Action Guide" sidebars collected by bestselling Meredith Maran and series editor Angela Watrous.

Synopsis:

Homosexuality has been politicized. But when the issue hits home, whether it involves a family member, colleague, or neighbor who's gay, all that controversy fades in the face of a real, live person who wants and deserves basic human rights and freedoms. Written by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people and those who care about them, 50 Ways to Support Lesbian and Gay Equality is a compendium of informative, joyful, and poignant essays by well-known experts, activists, and leaders, each promoting understanding while suggesting simple actions. From defining terminology ("What's gay baiting?"), to exploring family issues ("How can I support a lesbian couple who want to have children?"), the book deftly navigates workplace, cultural, and political issues. This timely and much-needed guide demonstrates positive ways to deal with everyday homophobia and heterosexism, or just plain uncertainty at the unfamiliar, offering guidance on issues ranging from the personal — what to say to a closeted friend — to the political — how to support gay rights around the world.
