Overview

Is it ok to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer and be a Christian at the same time? The IDentity Kit answers tough questions like this and more while affirming spirituality and sexuality for teen readers. Use this book as a fun and interactive guide to learning the differences between gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation while using helpful tools like Samuel Killermann's (from Itspronouncedmetrosexual.com) Gender Bread Person to plot your unique identity.

With special forward by Dr. Michele Angello who specializes in issues around sexual and gender orientation, teens learn how to read those tricky Bible texts as well as identify which verses affirm their gay, lesbian, trans, bi, or queer orientations. You too can join Crystal as she takes readers through a special experience where orientation, gender identity, and religious convictions are affirmed.

Discover how to distinguish fact from fiction with the Myth Busters section that breaks down myths like "God made Adam Eve not Adam and Steve." Find out why it's impossible to "pray the gay away," and how you can defy common stereotypes for LGBTQ people when you're at school, at church, or at work. Most importantly discover where you can get resources to help you through coming out, starting a Queer Straight Alliance at your school, information for your parents to read and get involved, affirming churches in your area, community centers that host LGBTQ events, and tips on movies, magazines, and websites that can answer more of your questions.

After you've read the book you can order the playing cards for hours of educational fun at YouriDK.com. If you want to learn more about the topics addressed in this book by participating in a group interaction, consider hosting an IDK workshop in your area. Find out more at YourIDK.com
