Editorial Reviews

Review

“Readers will find all sorts of useful information in the revised, updated second edition of GLBTQ: The Survival Guide for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Teens.”—Gregg Shapiro, Bay Area Reporter



“One of the best guides available for queer teens and their allies . . . Huegel unflinchingly and clearly explains what young adults, parents, and educators want and need to know . . . An excellent choice for libraries of all types.”—School Library Journal



“Uplifting wisdom . . . GLBTQ is sage advice, and a strong gift to any teenager.”—Midwest Book Review



GLBTQ’s subtitle promises that this text is a survival guide, and in many ways, it delivers on that promise. For youth needing basic resources . . . GLBTQ will provide both help, and hope, for our most vulnerable community members.”—Curve magazine



“Addresses the most critical issues faced by contemporary GLBTQ teens . . . the information it provides for teens makes it a valuable addition to any high school or public library collection.”—VOYA



“This book is one of queer life’s essentials—a must have for any LGBTQ young person, parent, or person working with youth. It is a book that can save and transform young lives and we need it to be everywhere.”—Out in Jersey Magazine



“This is a book I would have stolen from my library. 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.”

—Jamie McGonnigal, Talk About Equality blog



“For school counselors looking for a book that will provide professional development by deepening empathy for LGBTQ students, this book is a must-have. 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.”—ASCA School Counselor

As a mother of a gay child and a member of PFLAG, I found this book very informative to the GBLTQ person and parents and family. I would recommend it to everyone and would hope it was found in all libraries.

This book covers it all and I highly recommend it to anyone, whether you are a parent, child, educator or loved one of a young person questioning their gender identity. A truly important and ground-breaking reference that has been needed in our society for a very long time.

I am so happy this book exists! It gives clear, straightforward, factual information about every aspect of GLBT identity and experience, from questioning to bullying to safer sex to religious practice. This is valuable information for anyone, teen or not, gay or straight, to have on hand.

I bought this for my out gay 9th grader for Christmas and he and I both have loved it. The information is important, the concerns are relevant to him at this point in his life, the layout is interesting and accessible. If you love your child, buy him or her this book.

I ordered this book to share with a young teenager who's coming out has had negative repercussions in his family. He finds it very helpful and is grateful for the resource.

This book tells the truth about the GLBTQ community. the hardships of discovery and coming out, the joy of accepting yourself, how to protect yourself in a not so understanding world. I only hope every GLBTQ teenager will read this and get a sense of hope, help, and understanding of themselves

Being a bisexual female, when I found this book I bought it immediately. It helped me discover myself and not be embarrassed that I am bisexual. I think it is an educational book that everyone should read.

This book and Unleash The Rebel Within are the two books I recommend to my clients who are LGBT. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the handbook of self-discovery and empowerment.
