An updated and revised edition of a useful, informative, and fun guide for navigating life as an LGBT teen.

Teen life is hard enough, but for teens who are LGBTQ, it can be even harder. When do you decide to come out? Will your friends accept you? And how do you meet people to date? Queer is a humorous, engaging, and honest guide that helps LGBTQ teens come out to friends and family, navigate their social life, figure out if a crush is also queer, and challenge bigotry and homophobia. Personal stories from the authors and sidebars on queer history provide relatable context. This completely revised and updated edition is a must-read for any teen who thinks they might be queer or knows someone who is. "A delightful collection of trustworthy and accurate information that tweens and teens need today, all told in a sort of quirky, sometimes goofy, and always approachable tone...a fun, easy to read, and occasionally hilarious guide that should be available on a shelf in every high school library."

—Diane Anderson-Minshall, Editorial Director, The Advocate magazine

"Not every queer kid has easy access to a family member, teacher, counselor, or friend who can help them through the coming-out process. Even when they do, NEWSFLASH, most of us don't have all the answers! Queer is a great way for a teen, or someone who is trying to mentor or understand a queer teen, to gain some knowledge from a thoughtful, cute perspective."—Honey Mahogany, Activist, RuPaul's Drag Race Alumnus, Cofounder of the Compton's Transgender Cultural District

"I learned more than a few things about our fabulously diverse queer culture, and especially the younger generation, that everyone should know."—Terry Beswick, Executive Director of the GLBT Historical Society Archives and Museum
