Overview

Are you queer or questioning? If you are, this book is for you. Do you know someone who might be queer or questioning? If so, this book is for you, too. Or are you someone who just wants to learn more about what it's like to be queer or questioning? This book is a great place to begin. Discovering that you, or someone you love, might be GLBTQ is a revelation. Accepting it is a process. One thing that can help that process is information. This book can't answer all of your questions or counter all of the misinformation, misconceptions, myths, half-truths, and outright lies you might have heard about being GLBTQ, but it's a start.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This book is just what it says: a survival guide. Teens who fit into any of these categories will love it. There is information to help teens in many areas, beginning with a chapter encouraging them to explore their own personalities and continuing all the way through high school, college and beyond in the working world. This volume is packed with information that teens will want: how to deal with homophobic behavior, how to "come out," situations with friends and relationships, how to stay healthy, and how to reconcile personal beliefs with religious and cultural belief systems. There are even discussions of how to deal with tobacco, alcohol, and drugs from the viewpoint of teens in these categories. In addition to talking about the high school campus, there is also a chapter containing information on choosing a school for post-high school education as well as how to find a friendly workplace. This book will not be gathering dust on a shelf. If it doesn't disappear completely, swiped by a teen who desperately needs it, it will be in constant use. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Free Spirit, 224p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 15 to adult.

Gr 7 Up-A great choice for teens who are gay or questioning their sexuality, or even those who would like to know more about what it's like to be queer (Huegel says it's "a great word because it frees you from using a more specific label if you don't want to"). Written in hip language and style, the book covers the basics in GLBTQ 101, then moves chapter by chapter through the primary issues and questions such as coming out; dating and sexuality; religion; and life at school, work, and home. Each chapter contains sidebar quotes from gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning teens and descriptions of appropriate resources such as books, organizations, and Web sites. GLBTQ doesn't cover any new ground, but it does give sound, practical information and advice in an inviting package from an author who has done her homework and has written the book that she wished she could have read when she was a teen.-Betty S. Evans, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
