Quirk Books | October 9, 2012 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review

Based on the hugely popular blog of the same name, Born This Way shares 100 different memories of growing up LGBTQ. Childhood photographs are accompanied by sweet, funny, and at times heartbreaking personal stories. Collected from around the world and dating from the 1940s to today, these memories speak to the hardships of an unaccepting world and the triumph of pride, self-love, and self-acceptance. This intimate little book is a wonderful gift for all members of the LGBTQ community as well as their friends and families. Like Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project, Born This Way gives young people everywhere the courage to say, “Yes, I’m gay. And I was born this way. I’ve known it since I was very young, and this is my story.”

Editorial Reviews

“The book, a sweet and fun reminder to accept all of our children takes maybe an hour to read, but that includes lingering over the photos, which truly deserve to be lingered over.”—NJ.com

“...an amazing new book....”—Huffington Post “Gay Voices”

“...[a] touching compendium of LGBT people recounting how they came to realize they were gay and sharing their subsequent coming out stories.”—Metro
 
“From stories of wearing Mom’s dresses to little girls who just wanted to be tough guys, Born This Way serves some sweet—albeit brief—messages of joy and strength.”—Instinct Magazine
