From the Publisher

A great read and an indispensable reference. ...Advice on sex, weddings and parenting, how much to reveal on Facebook and résumés, why it’s harmful to say ‘that’s so gay’—Steven Petrow has written a remarkably comprehensive guide to the complexities of modern LGBT life.
—Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped

Oh, the old days! So simple! Keep your head down and don’t get caught. Now, with the freedom to be ourselves, it’s nothing but decisions, decisions, decisions. Lucky for us, we’ve got Steven Petrow—Dear Abby, Emily Post, Ask Amy, Dan Savage, and a reassuring older sibling all rolled into one sane, sage, and savvy voice.
