More and more gay teens are speaking out about the realization of their sexuality, and about the consequences—the reactions of friends and families, schoolmates and society in general. These heartfelt memoirs, originally presented orally in schools, speak poignantly about the lives of young gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and transsexual people today.

Booklist Online - June 1, 2004
"This collection of personal accounts of sexual self-discovery...is remarkable for the diversity of social, economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds represented. An important and emotionally powerful collection that is sure to encourage thought and discussion."
