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.
A funny and pertinent book about being lesbian, bisexual, gay, queer, transgender or just curious - for everybody, no matter their gender or sexuality
