"Divided into sections about coming out, homophobia, what it means to be queer, dating, and sex, this guidebook offers
upfront advice and information for teens who think they may be (or know they are) lesbian, gay, bisexual, or
transgender. The authors are equally open in asides drawn from their own experience (including disastrous dates and
coming out to parents and friends), and additional sidebars explore LGBT pioneers like Harvey Milk and Christine
Jorgensen, as well as current topics such as gay athletes and gay marriage. The tone of the book is consistently
accessible, pop culture–savvy, and supportive ('Dating can often be awkward and stressful no matter your age [or] sexual
orientation.... But as a queer teen, you've got a few more challenges on your plate'). An extensive list of resources,
including Web sites, organizations, and books, is included."―Publishers Weekly
