When the character Caitlin, played by Stacie Mistysyn, did an episode on the popular CBC-TV show Degrassi High in which she questioned whether she was a lesbian, her older sister – unknown to her – was going through the same crisis, for real. So when the ‘Degrassi team hit the streets to find out what teens really think about sexuality,’ Stacie Mistysyn was the designated interviewer. This is a book of first person stories from teens: Don on ‘The Gender Equity Retreat’, Anthony ‘Facing Homophobia as an ‘Out’ Gay’, Jessica’s ‘Roles and relationships’, Stefan ‘On not making the first move’, Dani ‘When Mom is a lesbian’, Pat’s ‘Pains of first love’, Kim (Stacie’s sister) ‘Coming to terms with her gay sexuality’. The interviews are rounded out by FACTS sections giving necessary information about Homosexuality, Date Rape, Puberty, etc. An interview with Stacie herself, conducted by Catherine Dunphy, begins the book.
