LGBTQ is the indispensable resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning teens and their allies.
This fully revised and updated third edition includes current information on LGBTQ terminology, evolving understandings of gender identity and sexual identity, LGBTQ rights, and much more. Other advice covers topics such as coming out, confronting prejudice, getting support, making healthy choices, and thriving in school and beyond.
Resources point the way to books and websites with more information, and quotes from LGBTQ teens (and allies) share stories of personal experiences.
Created with input from PFLAG, GLSEN, GLAAD, and others, this book is for young people who are beginning to question their sexual orientation or gender identity, those who are ready to work for LGBTQ rights, and those who may need advice, guidance, or reassurance that they are not alone.
"LGBTQ is a book for EVERYONE, whether queer or hetero, to learn how to be a true advocate for yourself and the rainbow community under the umbrella of the social justice movement. This is the book I wish my pansexual self had as a teenager to refer back to regularly and know I was not (and am not) alone. Consider this your queer encyclopedia, a conduit to navigating a sometimes still hateful and judgy world, with a soft pillow of loving advice to cushion the blow. There is a newer, preferable language in the gay community that includes everyone--this book will help you be sensitive toward others as you find yourself. Love is indeed love, but this book will take you far beyond love with a strong education of your legal rights and cultural history."
Chloé Jo Davis, founder and editor of GirlieGirlArmy.com, conscious living expert, and activist
"LGBTQ is an essential resource for teens, parents, school administrators, and anyone else who wants to provide an affirming environment for young people eager to learn more about themselves and about how to be a good ally to others. The book manages to be both readable and accessible to teens, while providing some of the latest information about the state of legal protections for LGBTQ young people across the country, and surveying medical, mental health, and social science research on sexuality, gender, and identity. Navigating young adulthood is hard. For young people armed with LGBTQ, it will be easier."
Camilla Taylor, director of constitutional litigation at Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Inc.
"Astoundingly comprehensive and wise, LGBTQ by Kelly Huegel Madrone is filled with clear information and practical suggestions to help young people safely explore their gender and sexual identity. I wish my library had this book when I was a teen!"
Irwin Krieger, author of Helping Your Transgender Teen and Counselling Transgender and Non-Binary Youth
