What readers are saying —
"This book is magnificent: hard to read at times because of the pain so honestly shared, and completely uplifting when you realize the strength and beauty of this next generation. I can’t wait for the voices in this book to run the world. We’ll be in great hands. Oh, and there’s a GLOSSARY! I wish more books came with glossaries."
-Baratunde Thurston. Author, How To Be Black. CEO Cultivated Wit. Proud ally.
“We Are The Youth brilliantly illustrates the complexity, beauty, and diversity of LGBT youth. This book captures the heart and soul of what it means to negotiate sexuality and gender identity in today’s world.”
-Danah Boyd, It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens
"This is such an amazingly beautiful and timely book."
-Jacqueline Woodson, Miracle’s Boys
"This book moves far beyond the normative trope that “it gets better” for young LGBT people. The poignant and powerful voices captured here demonstrate with full force that our young people have so much to teach us about how much has changed since the rise of lesbian and gay liberation in the mid-20th century – and about how much remains unchanged."
- Stephanie Gilmore, Ph.D., Groundswell: Grassroots Feminist Activism in Post War America
"It’s important for queer youth to tell our stories so the world can see we were here, and this is how we lived our lives."
-Kaden, We Are the Youth participant
"A generous opportunity in todays moral climate, to look into the eyes of the youth, learn their stories, feel their dignity, vulnerability & grace."
-Morley, activist singer-songwriter
