Personal narratives by 15 young people complement commentary at the beginning of each chapter on what it is like to a lesbian, gay or bisexual young person. There are chapters on sexual identity, coming out, and the pain of being LGB in high school. In addition, a chapter on religion-based attitudes toward homosexuality puts anti-LGBT rhetoric in perspective.
