“It gets better.”
This necessary message has made its way into mainstream media as a reaction to bullying and violence toward gay teens. Sexual identification can be a challenging step for teens who might be queer, and ways to navigate the future might seem unclear. It is with personal experience, professional resources and unflappable support that authors Kathy Belge and Marke Bieschke wrote QUEER: THE ULTIMATE LGBT GUIDE FOR TEENS (June 2011).
QUEER is a humorous, engaging and honest guide that helps teens understand what being queer means, and how to come out to family and friends (and deal with repercussions). It provides suggestions for a healthy and vibrant LGBT social life (the “queer sphere”), while offering ways to deal with bigotry and homophobia. QUEER also includes personal stories from the authors, fascinating sidebars on queer history and an abundance of health, community, safety, political and reading resources.
