Issues such as homophobia, coming out, school, friends, relationships, sex and sexuality, religion and culture, work, college and beyond are discussed and helpful for teens who may be questioning their sexuality, know that they are GLBT, or have someone close to them that are GLBT and want to provide support for their friend or family member. This book is complete and therefore it can be a one-time stop for teenagers who need their questions solved or need further resources and help.
The book includes useful websites, bibliography, and an index to help teens find specific topics. Although the book is not in color, the layout and different text fonts and backgrounds use are teen friendly. Each chapter has additional features such as charts, quotes from real teens, and tips that make the chapters fly by. I thought that the author did a wonderful job adding additional resources not only at the end of the book but in the writings, so that teenagers can learn how to search topics of interest and useful websites.

At a time when the nation is suffering an epidemic of LGBTQ youth suicides due to bullying, this is a book that could likely be helpful for many kids feeling that it can't get better. But it is a book not only for teens, but for the adults as well who need to get a sense of what it is these kids go through for in addition to the usual pressures and changes of becoming a teen, LGBTQ youths also face the challenge of coming to terms wit This book is an excellent overview and guide for GLBTQ teens.
But it is a book not only for teens, but for the adults as well who need to get a sense of what it is these kids go through for in addition to the usual pressures and changes of becoming a teen, LGBTQ youths also face the challenge of coming to terms with their sexual orientation. This is something adults need to understand as well.
Is the reader dealing with the issue of coming out? There is a chapter on the topic that provides questions with answers as well as lists of information and support resources. The decision to come out is not an easy one, and the book gives information and facts to help make an informed decision regardless of whether the LGBTQ reader decides to come out or not; there is no tone of pressure for either view. Chapters are divided in short, easy to read sections. There are also information boxes with various lists of resources and places to find support and information.
Additionally, the book integrates short stories of youths to let readers know that they are not alone, that others have faced the same questions. This is a book that should be in every library, especially school libraries. And it needs to be visible so teens can find it.
When I ordered it for our academic library, I was asked "who the hell is going to come read or check out that book? One, because we may have young people, including some of our young students, who may need such a book. Two, because we do have a School of Education, and future teachers should be reading this book to get some awareness; very often, young people will come out or at least confide in a teacher they feel comfortable with.
This book is also for them. So, I went ahead and ordered it anyways. In the end, this is an excellent tool for any LGBTQ youth, but it is also an excellent tool to educate others. I highly recommend it. Nov 08, Penny rated it liked it. This book has a ton of resources.

GLBTQ*: The Survival Guide for Queer & Questioning Teens by Kelly Huegel
The section on work had some good resources on checking company's nondiscrimination policies for prospective employers as well. The writing is often flat, boring, and repetitive. The quotes from GLBTQ people are a great idea, but the the quotes themselves are often not that profound or inspiring. That being said,I think that it is a must-have for any public or high school library.
The reference appendixes in the back alone would make this a worthwhile purchase. ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. What label is big enough to encompass the expansiveness and capacity of the human heart?
GLBTQ: The Survival Guide for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual,
I definitely thought this book was a good read! As a member of the LGBTQ community, who studies sexuality studies in school and is pretty confident in my sexuality, I have to say that a lot of what I read in the book wasn't of news to me. But, I definitely think that this book is relevant and can definitely help people who are firs ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. GLBTQ is a book that needs to be in every junior high and high school library. The book is thorough and could help empower so many young people who are going through their adolescence full of fear.
But even more importantly, by loaning the book out to students, school counselors can provide assurance to LGBTQ students that they are not alone and that there is an adult ready to help them process through any questions without judgment. Skip to main content.
