From Booklist

The face and experience of GLBTQ college students is dramatically different than 10—or even 5—years ago, the authors of this latest Princeton Guide argue. And the wealth of resources they offer appears to prove the point. At the same time, however, they admit that there are still challenges to being out in college, and, indeed, a recurring theme is the need for prudence in an environment that can still turn hostile—and even dangerous. That said, most GLBTQ readers will be delighted by the extraordinary number and range of services, organizations, and enlightened attitudes that await them in the college of their choice (and here they'll find sensible guidance on choosing that college, too). Though prospective college students are the principal audience for this encyclopedic guide, concerned parents and counselors will also find much of interest as well. While some topics are more generic than gay-specific (leisure activities, career planning), most remain focused on the principal readership (coming out, dealing with homophobia, financial assistance for GLBTQ students, etc.). Numerous quotes from those already in college further enhance the immediacy and authenticity of the advice offered. Cart, Michael

Format: Paperback
Indeed, things are changing! Thank you to the Princeton Review and to the authors of the Gay & Lesbian Guide to College Life. More resources are needed to help prospective college students to find the best campus and to be successful once they are on campus. As the Executive Director of Campus Pride, the leading national nonprofit organization for LGBT & ally student leaders, we recommend this book as an excellent companion to The Advocate College Guide for LGBT Students and our national online LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index for colleges and universities ([...] Definitely a resource you must-have!
