Editors David Levithan and Billy Merrell share essays from forty lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) writers between the ages of thirteen and twenty-three in this jam-packed collection that offers insight into the experiences and attitudes of LGBTQ youth today. Being uncertain about sexual identity, or coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, isn’t either easy or unconditionally accepted. But the world is changing. Attitudes toward sexuality are changing. And nowhere is this more apparent than in the experiences and outlooks of young adults today. The forty who share their stories here are voices of a new, inspiring generation committed to speaking the multiple truths of who they are. (Age 13 and older)
