This Book is Gay, by Juno Dawson

Former PSHCE teacher and acclaimed YA author James Dawson gives an uncensored look at sexual orientation and gender identity. Including testimonials from people across the gender and sexual spectrums, this frank, funny, fully inclusive book explores everything anyone who ever dared to wonder wants to know - from sex to politics, how to pull, stereotypes, how to come-out and more.

Calyx Allerton-Bullard, Reading Well Project Assistant says:

An understandable, friendly advice book for teenagers figuring out their sexuality – it provides helpful, practical advice with charming illustrations, and easy-to-understand terminology, balanced out with support and encouraging language. The overall message of this book, “whatever you are is okay!” is prominent throughout, and for LGBTQ+ teens nothing could be more important than that affirmation. All in all, a good starting book into the LGBTQ+ community and its literature.
