Product description

Review

Overall the book is fantastically presented with truly inspirational stories that will leave you with a sense of admiration for the strengh and bravery of the contributors. The book will make a ideal gift for any of your gay friends or parents of children or young people who are gay. --Allaboutme dot com, October, 2012

Much like the It Gets Better project, BORN THIS WAY lends to that example, not only within the GLBTX community, but far far beyond it as well. For anyone who isn't gay, I still think books like BORN THIS WAY are extremely important. I hope it inspires understanding, acceptance, and support of the GLBTX youth around us who might be looking for a little kindness. Together, let's erase the hate, and make the world a better place. I recently saw an interview with the mother of Matthew Shepard, in which she said that parents of gay teens are often not surprised when their children come out. If you think, or know, your son or daughter is gay, have this book on the shelf for them. It may bring great comfort to them, not only in reading it, but as another small gesture of acceptance they need from you. --Alisons bookmarks, October, 2012

Based on the Born This Way blog, the anthology reveals funny and heartbreaking stories of those growing up LGBTQ, accompanied by childhood photographs. --Los Angeles magazine, October, 2012

I came across this book whilst browsing on amazon a feww weeks back. the book arrived today and ive read it from cover to cover already and even flicked back through it again. What charming, funny, sad, inspirational, encouraging, uplifting and powerful advice this book had. Such wonderful short tales of life growing up in a very difficult world when being gay.
I certainly recomend this book to those people still worried about telling friends and family about your sexulaity. Its also a good read for anyone, including parents that would like some re-assurance or guidence on how to help their family. Thank you Pual Vitagliano for creating this wonderful book.

This book is totally adorable with a really stylish layout. The pictures and accompanying stories range from funny to kitsch to poignant. They all have one thing in common and that's that they're inspirational. It's an amazing concept and a great book.

If only I'd had a book like this to turn to when I was growing up. I imagine many have said just that when they've read this wonderful book. It only took me a day to read and I loved every moment of it. I could even see myself in many of the stories!!!

We need more like this Paul!!
