Editorial Reviews


CBS News Gay Coloring Book Draws Controversy KEYE Austin, TX. Allison Sallee, who is a psychologist with Tejas Family Guidance, says some kids question their sexuality at a very young age. "I've definitely had kids who believe they may be gay, lesbian or bisexual come in at 10 or 11," said Sallee. Sallee believes the 40-page coloring book -- complete with a sample coming out letter -- and gay celebrity trading cards -- is a great teaching tool -- for any age. "It's a really non-threatening way to talk about that. I like that," added Sallee. ----Alex Boyer CBS Austin, TX

OUT Magazine - Here Media Inc - "A practical (and fabulous) approach for children, adults, and educators to address gay life. The book can act as a fun coffee-table conversation starter, an introduction into gay culture and history, and/or a guide for folks who may be struggling with understanding their own sexuality or the sexuality of others. Or you can just marvel that there are gay trading cards. Overall, the novel s main message is that being gay is something to be celebrated and there is community, history and resources to be found in LGBTQ culture. If you're looking for a great way to educate a child or friend or want to spice up your road trip or waiting room, check out Being Gay Is Okay. Or just buy it to have fun at your next dinner party." ----Chloe Fitzpatrick OUT Magazine Here Media Inc.

Dr. Deb Pontillo - a pediatric psychologist and expert in child development, behavior, and learning. Pontillo thinks most of the book will simply go over a child's head with no harm, but she also sees pages they will understand, like the one with a family with two dads, and she says that's a good thing. "You know, we're not talking about sexuality. We're not talking about what that means to be in love. We're just talking about different kinds of families, and everyone's family is different and here's what my family looks like, and let's color it," said Pontillo. What Pontillo really likes about the book is that it's a creative way to get people talking about an issue many find uncomfortable, but must face. ----How to help my Child with Dr. Deborah Pontillo

I enjoyed this bit of goofiness. Amazingly the trading cards are the most popular component amongst those I have shown this little booklet full of entertaining activities. It isn't hugely inclusive but for the purpose it serves I think they did a decent job. To really meet the needs of everyone in the queer community they need to publish a coloring book series.
