I liked this book very much. It is written in a funny way and encourages you to think about yourself.
I would have wanted books like this when I was a teen, because teenager life is not easy. You often feel like nobody really understands what you are feeling and what is going on with you.
More complicated it is when you feel that you may be queer. This book helps you to get along with it. How you find out. How to tell your parents and your friends. What the reactions could be. How to get along with the reactions. Also it informs you where you can find other queers, about queer dating, relationships, sex and possible risks. In a funny and open way every detail is described.

Even if you are not queer, this book shows you that a relationship is always a thing between two humans. It does not really matter if you are straight or queer. The thing, which is most important is feeling comfortable in your skin.
You do not have to fit in a scheme. You have to find your own way and have to be satisfied. That is all that really matters.

I got this book for myself to help me figure out what to do now that I'm "out," as well as to help me assist my peers in their respective coming out processes. I appreciate that the book covers a broad range of sexual orientations. It provides teens with a variety of options and suggestions on a plethora of topics, rather than trying to point teens in a specific direction. I feel that the book also helps give the reader a broader perspective on sexuality and relationships. The personal examples from the authors truly make the book come to life. They show the reader that everybody is human, and we all go through some tough times, but with the right attitude, and a proper approach, people will pull through.

Sorry for getting a little philosophical there, I just wanted to share some of what makes this book so great. I have bought a couple of copies to give to friends who are going through a process of self-discovery. I would highly recommend this book to any teen, or the parent of any teen who is questioning their sexuality, or is out and not sure where to go from there.

This is a book I wish I had been able to read as a teen. I stumbled upon Lipstick & Dipstick's Essential Guide to Lesbian Relationships (also highly recommended) and thought that was a funny and very insightful book so I was excited to see that Kathy Belge "Dipstick" had also co-written this book. There is so much good information that LGBT teens would not normally have access to. I strongly recommend it to anyone (even adults) who are questioning their sexuality or who know but are struggling with how and when to come out. It's filled with humor, great advice and personal stories that everyone can relate to. Buy it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book "Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide for Teens" is a frank, sensitive, upbeat and impressively cogent overview and explanation of non-mainstream sexual orientations. The 206-page book does a masterful job in normalizing what has too often been perceived as deviant, pathological, immoral, even inferior sexual orientation. It is co-authored by a gay male and a lesbian who, throughout its development, consulted an eager, five-member group of gay teenagers. Its educational approach is appropriate not only for teens, but for anyone, teen and adult, male and female, gay and straight, closeted and out, and is refreshingly objective, fact-filled, and plain-spoken. Humorous line drawings are sprinkled throughout, and shaded squares appear periodically to give short summaries of each chapter's salient points, such as "Breakup Dos and Don'ts", "Dating Someone Much Older", "Is It a Date?", "Stepping Outside the Pink Triangle", and "Yep. I'm Gay.". Not surprisingly, gay and straight teens alike will gain valuable insight from much of the political, intimate, familial and social advice, as well as from the empathic yet objective discussions of friendship, community, sensibility, practicality, inner pride, psychological or physical bullying, honesty and activism. "Queer" offers an index and queer resource lists of organizations, religious websites, religious books, resource books, historical books, comics, fiction and anthologies. This book should be on the shelves of every teenager, family, doctor's office, school library, public library, house of worship, and book store in the civilized world.

My preteen who is going through her coming out phase has really benefited from this book. It sits on her nightstand every night and has been immensely helpful in making her feel not alone, not weird, and understood. Highly recommend.

This book is amazing. If you're even just questioning, definitely get it. It explains things in a nice way, and is just nice to sort of make you more comfortable with being queer. :)

I am questioning, and quite Queer. This helps any possibly gay or trans person in asking themselves questions and accepting that answers may not be clear. It is an easy read for teens, but anybody in college can be helped too by this. I not give 5 stars because a few sentences I think are a bit biased positively, and I like pure unbiased facts. But it is not enough to stop me from highly recommending this book to anybody with a question about gender and sexual identity.
