Born This Way: Real Stories of Growing Up Gay
"Born This Way" shares and celebrates all kinds of growing up LBGTQ stories through personal memories and childhood photographs. With more than 100 profiles, "Born This Way" is a delightful celebration of growing up gay. Based on the hugely popular (3 million views and counting since its launch in January 2011) blog of the same name, this hip, gifty little hardcover belongs in the homes of America and the world. It's a book for members of the LBGTQ community, as well as friends, family, and anyone who has followed the tragic stories of gay teen suicides. It will tap into the same vein as Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project", giving people everywhere the courage to say Yes, I'm gay. And I was born this way. I've known it since I was very young, and this is my story.
