Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ajournalist covering LGBT issues and gay legislation for more than 20 years, Keen delivers a sharp and coherent analysis of legal issues affecting LGBT kids today. After expertly guiding readers through a brief, easily digestible history of gay legislation, Keen empowers young gay people to not only know what their rights are but to stand up for them—whether facing threats or harassment from police, a teacher or a kid at school. In each case, she spells out what those rights are and how to properly assert them. Along the way, Keen relates some horrifying and tragic accounts of civil and constitutional rights abuse against LGBT kids, as well as extraordinary examples of those who stood up and made a difference, not only in their own communities, but in shaping the overall climate of gay legislation today. Geared to LGBT teenagers, this important, eye-opening book is also an essential read for any parent with a gay child. Loaded with appendixes, Keen's book gives useful information such as how to look up a law, a time line of legal landmarks, how and where to find legal help and organizations for LGBT youth. (June)

From Booklist

Established journalist Keen has written an indispensable introduction to the legal rights of LGBT youth. Though she's not trained in the law, Keen has clearly done her research, and the result is a systematic and comprehensive survey that belongs in every library. The second title in Beacon's Queer Action/Queer Ideas series, this well-organized and clearly written volume is, as Kevin Jennings notes in his foreword, "something of a survival guide for LGBT students." Though not intended to be a self-help guide, the book does a fine job of introducing students--and their parents, teachers, friends, and advocates--to the system of law, ranging from the Constitution to local statutes, that articulates their rights to free speech, privacy, assembly, and more. Eight appendixes, a glossary, and 14 pages of notes provide essential additional information and documentation. Michael Cart
