About

Overview

Despite a sea of change in attitudes in recent years, the LGBTQ+ community still faces much discrimination. This affirming book empowers readers to confront discrimination and offers practical guidance on navigating a sometimes hostile world where not everyone believes that LGBTQ+ people should have the same rights as everyone else. Readers who define as LGBTQ+ will find themselves encouraged, and those who do not will learn how to be supportive allies of their LGBTQ+ friends and classmates, both in and out of school. This resource includes a list of suggested questions for an expert and myths and facts about discrimination.
