About this title


A sensitive and thoughtful guide to the conflicting emotions and difficulties of gay, lesbian, and bisexual teens offers common-sense advice and information about legal and health issues, lists of resources, social problems, and much more.

From Booklist:

Gr. 7^-12. Unlike Roger Sutton's Hearing Us Out (1994), which uses personal testimony to communicate what it's like to be gay, this uses a traditional approach. In fact, with chapters on sexual orientation (including a controversial chapter noting "a probably genetic basis for homosexuality" ), gay history, stereotypes, and love, the book is a good lead-in to Sutton's. The uncrowded format makes it look approachable, and the tone is never strident, even when the authors are at their most serious--for example, in their refutation of biblical literalists, in their consideration of coming out to parents, and in their discussion of "surviving in a homophobic world." In covering so much, the book sometimes falls short, as in the chapter on health. But there are some unusual features to balance things out, among them, an attempt to acknowledge some of the special concerns of bisexuals and a chapter devoted to terms. Perhaps the greatest contribution the book makes, however, is its identification of a varied gay community that offers support as well as opportunities to become active in fighting harassment and securing basic human rights for all. There are no footnotes, but the authors do provide a bibliography. They also include an annotated list of further readings, with several 1995 titles. Stephanie Zvirin
