For many gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning (GLBTQ) teens, prejudice, discrimination, homophobic remarks, and violence are part of their everyday lives. They feel rejected, isolated, depressed, and even suicidal. Created with feedback and suggestions from individuals at PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), and other organizations, this book is for any GLBT or questioning teen–and for any straight friend, parent, teacher, or other adult who cares and wants to understand. Kelly Huegel offers practical advice, knowing encouragement, accessible resources, and real-life testimonials from teens who’ve ‘been there. ‘ Topics include coming out (the pluses and minuses), facing prejudice and pressure, getting support, staying safe, making healthy choices, surviving and thriving in high school, and more. The message throughout is strong and clear: Who you are is okay. As long as you accept yourself, there are no real barriers to your future happiness.
