Synopsis

LGBTQ Families The Ultimate Teen Guide by Eva Apelqvist

This book focuses on the difficulties young people face as members of households in which one or more members are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. It offers encouragement, insights, and resources to help them cope with and embrace the uniqueness of their family life. Teens and adults from LGBTQ families-and teens who identify as LGBTQ themselves-tell their personal stories and share strategies they use to deal with a sometimes unaccepting society. Topics discussed include politics, religion, media, and bullying.

Reviews

LGBTQ Families begins with an overview of each letter of the iconic acronym and progresses into a more thorough look at LGBTQ adolescents, LGBTQ parents, and how trans individuals may affect family dynamics. ... comprises a good blend of opinion and current research, making the series an excellent resource for both individual and curricular research. Booklist Readers looking to develop a basic understanding of these topics will be well served by [this] volume... LGBTQ Families is written by a straight ally rather than an LGBTQ parent or the child of an LGBTQ parent, which may be a drawback for some readers looking for more of an insider glimpse. However, excellent sections on becoming a straight ally and LGBTQ activist may not have been as strong without the benefit of that particular point of view. Library Journal LGBTQ Families: The Ultimate Teen Guide is designed with the high school age student in mind who wants a broad overview of the issues and questions that teens from LGBTQ families may experience. While the teenage years are a time of great emotional and psychological change, there are many issues that may arise for the teen growing up in a LGBTQ family, including not being accepted by their peers, being perceived as different, or bullying. Information in this work is presented through the personal stories of teens and young adults who have lived through these experiences
