Shelves: sexuality
I skimmed this book and tried to read it as fast as I could. For such a scary topic, it is quite laid-back. I definitely want to read this book again, on my own schedule (not in the middle of the night with a binder over it).

Shelves: funny
OK... All I know is that when my coworker came up to me with this book, showed me the page that said, "When not to come out" and then said that he always wished he would have come out to his parents on Christmas Morning... I about pissed myself. We went page after page through this book and did nothing but laugh so hard I almost pee'd. Just priceless

Recommends it for: Everyone
One of the loveliest books I've ever read on the subject. It uplifted me, made me laugh, smile, think and feel deeply. I loved Judy Carter's one-liners and comic twists, but I also felt loved back by her, especially at the Stretch exercise in Point 2 on pages 148-149. In this handbook, Judy Carter is not only funny, but deeply sensitive. She seems to have genuine compassion. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
