Former PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) teacher and acclaimed YA author James Dawson gives us an uncensored look at what it's like to grow up as a LGBT. Including testimonials from people across the gender and sexual spectrums, this frank, funny and fully inclusive book explores everything anyone who ever dared to wonder wants to know - from sex to politics, how to pull, stereotypes, how to come-out and more. Spike Gerrell's hilarious illustrations combined with funny and factual text make this a must-read.

Reviews

The book every LGBT person would have killed for as a teenager, told in the voice of a wise best friend. * Patrick Ness * A brave, funny, indignant look at what it means to grow up as LGTBQ. * Metro * Funny, wise and utterly pragmatic this is a brilliant readable and informative book... which could not only help teens become more at ease in their own skin as they work out the details of who they are, but could change your entire school culture, for the better. * Teach Secondary * Filling an important gap in non-fiction publishing is this frank, funny and very welcome exploration of gender and sexuality. * The Bookseller * Frank and funny * Now magazine * It's impossible to overstate the importance of a book like this * Gay Community News * A fantastic book for classrooms and school libraries, This Book is Gay is a must-read for teachers and parents, as well as teens themselves. * Liverpool Echo *
