Product description

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–Twenty-two young people involved in a Toronto organization talk about the experiences that led them to T.E.A.C.H. (Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia), as well as their ups and downs as program volunteers and counselors–and beyond. The stories are frank and personal and sometimes heartbreaking, but they all share a sense of individual growth, personal acceptance, and hope. Another thing they share is a strong allegiance to T.E.A.C.H., which seems to be an effective tool in promoting not only self-awareness, but also tolerance and understanding. Yet, at times, this often-moving collection can sound a bit like a vehicle to promote the organization, which, in some sense, it is. Accordingly, it may prove to be most useful as a resource for educators, youth workers, and parents, functioning as a catalyst for ideas, discussions, and programs. Stories are written by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual/transgendered youth, and short biographies of the contributor are appended. The book will be useful, especially in the Toronto area, but Mary L. Gray's In Your Face: Stories from the Lives of Queer Youth (Haworth, 1997) and Adam Mastoon's The Shared Heart (Morrow, 1997) may be more accessible to young adult readers.–Jeff Katz, School of Library, Archival, & Information Studies, University of British Columbia

From Booklist

Gr. 8-12. A project of Planned Parenthood of Toronto, this collection of personal accounts of sexual self-discovery by volunteers in the organization's peer-based T.E.A.C.H. program (Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia) is remarkable for the diversity of social, economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds represented. The 20 stories included demonstrate the wide spectrum of gay, lesbian, queer, transgender, transsexual, and questioning young-adult experiences. The settings may be Canadian, but the well-written accounts show the universality of the experience, including the dangers associated with being different and the widespread failure of schools to protect young people from homophobia and transphobia.^B An important and emotionally powerful collection that is sure to encourage thought and discussion.
