9780978597368: Kicked Out

In the U.S., 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer(LGBTQ). Kicked Out brings together the voices of current and former homeless LGBTQ youth and tells the forgotten stories of some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. Diverse contributors share stories of survival and abuse with poignant accounts of the sanctuary of community and the power of creating chosen families. Kicked Out highlights the nuanced perspectives of national organizations such as The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and The National Alliance Against Homelessness and regional agencies, including Sylvia’s Place, The Circus Project and Family Builders. This anthology, introduced by Judy Shepard, gives voice to the voiceless and challenges the stereotypical face of homelessness.

Review:

"The work's benedictory approach is a breath of fresh air, as far too many accounts of this population emphasize the gaps in care, homophobia in foster care, and the lack of beds for queer youth. While the essays in Kicked Out acknowledge these challenges, the work emphasizes coping and resiliency." --Lambda Literary Review, July 8, 2010

This book is not an easy read, and neither should it be. Within its pages are individual truths of youth living kicked out. It provides a variety of perspectives from a diverse group of authors ranging in age, experience, and current living situation. Within it lie autobiographical stories, photography, interviews and poetry. --TransEnough.com, February 21, 2010

The real strength of Kicked Out is how, by telling survivors' stories in their own voices, the stories feel viscerally real. The contributions all feel very soul-baring and Truthful-with-a-capital-T, particularly the incredible photos by Samantha Box. --Transparental.com, February 18, 2010

For the person looking at this stuff in depth for the first time, this book as a whole will break your heart, educate you about the resources for queer youth that do exist, give you tools for advocating for change, break your heart again, and light a fire under you for immediate action. --Femmeliberation.Wordpress.com January 11, 2010
