Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology
October 1st, 2000
ISBN 1555835589 (ISBN13: 9781555835583)
Invisible. Unheard. Alone. Chilling words, but apt to describe the isolation and alienation of queer youth. In silence and fear they move from childhood memories of intolerance or violence to the unknown, unmentored landscape of queer adulthood, their voices stilled or ignored. No longer. Revolutionary Voices celebrates the hues and harmonies of the future of queer society, offering a collection of experiences, ideas, dreams, manifestos, and fantasies expressed through prose, poetry, artwork, and performance pieces. This one-of-a-kind collection is an all-encompassing, far-reaching call to action that provides the groundwork for a new community where all members are recognized as critical components to our future society.
LGBT Youth Issues Today: A Reference Handbook
April 21st, 2014
ISBN 1610693159 (ISBN13: 9781610693158)
While all youth are likely to face traumatic or stressful situations in their transition to adulthood, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered (LGBT) youth face significant and specific challenges in their lives–a result of living in a society that has yet to accept or be comfortable with the idea of same-sex or other “non-heterosexual” attraction, especially among young people. “LGBT Youth Issues Today: A Reference Handbook” presents historical background on the topic, provides an up- to-date examination of the issues of concern to LGBT youth, and offers in-depth information and resources for further research.
Resilience: Stories, Poems, Essays, Words for LGBT Teens
January 24th, 2012
To be queer and young is to be STRONG. To be queer and young is to be RESILIENT. Collected in this anthology are over 20 inspiring stories, poems, essays, and other writings made for you – our queer youth. Started in 2010 in a time of crisis for the queer community, these are the works of artists who wanted to show the world the power of words. While eclectic in style and form, what unites these works is a message of hope: it doesn’t just get better, you grow stronger and wiser. Money from the sale of this book will be used to help fund The Make It Safer Project, which aims to bring LGBT- related books into schools and homeless shelters and into the hands of LGBT kids.
