bookshelves: sexuality-and-gender

I read this book back in middle school, and it came along at just the right time. As I hit one of the first major periods of time spent questioning my sexual and gender identities, my teacher introduced the class to a couple of LGBTQI anthologies which were available on our classroom shelves for anyone to borrow. Reading the stories contained within was a huge influence on me at the time, and I am shocked that I only just remembered it recently upon reading about the gay YA fiction publication issue (see: http://tigerbeatdown.com/2011/09/13/y...). Anyway, highly recommended for anyone who wants to provide a young person in their lives with a good introduction to the plethora of sexual orientations out there.
