I really liked how this book was written. It was incredibly positive and touched on many subjects that we've discussed in my Pride Group at school. There were many points made,such as:

*Being more accepting of yourself will make it easier to accept others (this is true- I can attest to this personally though it is no easy feat).

* The need to combat society's general assumptions that everyone is straight and they identify with the gender that they were born with because these assumptions are not

This book was really engaging, easy to read and filled with sex positivity, which is always great to see. What I loved most was how the LGBTQ identity was promoted and shown in a totally optimistic light; all of the chapters highlighted good points of identifying with the LGBTQ community .Instead of focusing on the marginalization, as most works of this type do, it flipped the script and made being LGBTQ cool!
This is a must read for anyone that is in the social justice/social work/activism

This book is way too scholarly for everyday reading.

A book that brings a positive force to the LGBT world. Looking at what is positive about being LGBT is a tremendous great thong. Using quotes from people all over the place, and all types of LGBT, you get a sense that you can be LGBT and have a positive look at yourself.

The chapters are broken down into 9 sections. At the end of each chapter, there are exercises to make you reflect on what you read. I overall liked it. As someone who struggles with self-acceptance, it made I feel just a little

I enjoyed reading this book and liked the reflection prompts at the end of each chapter. It was an easy read and was not research heavy.

It was a worthwhile read but I found it to be quite redundant from page to page and chapter to chapter. So I ended up skimming quite a bit of it.

This book offers a very good perspective. I even want to use a good concept to describe it. Hope that I can do a Chinese version someday. ...more

This is an excellent resource for anybody wanting to learn more about the coming-out process. It provides positive experiences, showing the reader that there is always a bright side. Yes, there can be negative reactions, but it is important to keep a positive sense of mind and know that you are good just as you are :D

This was an amazingly helpful book, and a nice mental boost to my lacking positive outlook on life. After each chapter there is a small list of questions and activities to consider while thinking about the content of the chapter you just read. Also, the list of websites at the back is helpful.

Riddled with buzzwords, jargon and cliché... but in all honesty who gives a monkeys. Lovely postive message which you rarely get to see. Would have preferred some more in depth examples. Those presented did feel a bit superficial which is sad.
