Honored on the 2012 Rainbow Book List
Teen life is hard enough with all of the pressures kids face, but for teens who are LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender), it's even harder. When do you decide to come out? To whom? Will your friends accept you? And how on earth do you meet people to date? Queer is a humorous, engaging, and honest guide that helps LGBT teens come out to friends and family, navigate their new LGBT social life, figure out if a crush is also queer, and rise up against bigotry and homophobia. Queer also includes personal stories from the authors and sidebars on queer history. It's a must-read for any teen who thinks they might be queer -- or knows someone who is.

A charming guide with some humor and cute art, and definitely important for any LGBT youth(or even older LGBT people).

Want to know how to come out to a crush? Or tips on dealing with homophobia? What does "queer" mean anyway and what are your rights as a queer teen? Is there anyone who can tell you what a healthy LGBTQ relationship looks like? Written especially for LGBT and questioning youth, this accessible contemporary guide offers insider tips on navigating the wonderful, scary, challenging, complicated, and exciting world of queer life. The authors effectively use humor and down-to-earth common sense to offer a balance of facts, personal anecdotes, advice, and resources on a range of topics relevant to queer teens and their allies. A must-read.

Wonderful book! Very relevant and pretty accurate information. Good start with basics for someone who may be questioning, or simply wants to learn more about the experience of someone living as a queer. High recommend to anyone of ages 12+ and a great book to keep on your "Resources" shelf in the class, centre or anywhere else.
