This book tells you things that you might want to know about LGBTQIA. It's fresh, innovative, and informative.

James Dawson begins this book by saying it is for everyone, but the intention is to be a guide to young LGBT people. Most of the book serves as assurance to LGBT youth that there is a large community for them out in the world. There are certainly sections in the book that give helpful advice. The book isn't as comprehensive as it aims to be, with most of the book focusing on cis-gendered gay men. There are also parts where Dawson says that certain stereotypes are true, and that's a troubling statement for a book that is supposed to be celebrating individuality and fighting for equality.

I cannot believe this is what our world has come to. Trying to justify something that is so inhumane.

Great starting point for anyone who wants to know more about the A-Z of LGBT!
Originally published in the UK which is reflected in the personal stories and some of the language, but still obviously applicable to US readers.
