Once upon a time . . . A baby is born in privilege, blooming under the warmth of his parents' love. Jealousy sprouts and brings with it malevolent intentions. A king and queen cursed with an empty kingdom. A child abandoned in revenge. A misfit, the boy should turn hard and cold among the thorns he grows in. Despite lifelong attempts to destroy him, this child does not wither. Underneath his insecurity, he maintains a heart with the tenderest center. A heart that plays the most beautiful music. Not far from this misfit but in a whole different world, a dashing prince lives with a crown of expectations adorning his golden head. A prince raised with honor and duty. A prince expected to marry. Alas, during a simple walk in the forest, he is enchanted by a different song. And so a fairy tale is woven, two worlds colliding, secrets revealed, love everlasting . . . And a realization that not all fairy tales require a princess. Contains mature themes.Show more

If you're ready to heal from the past, find power in your difference, and live an authentic life full of confidence-this handbook will help guide you, step by step.Show more

High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive ethnography. Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, You're a Fag sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the 'specter of the fag' becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual as well as homosexual boys and how the 'fag discourse' is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.Show more
