About This Book

The bestselling young adult non-fiction book on sexuality and gender!

Lesbian. Gay. Bisexual. Transgender. Queer. Straight. Curious. This book is for everyone, regardless of gender or sexual preference. This book is for anyone who's ever dared to wonder. This book is for YOU.

There's a long-running joke that, after "coming out," a lesbian, gay guy, bisexual, or trans person should receive a membership card and instruction manual. THIS IS THAT INSTRUCTION MANUAL. You're welcome.

Inside you'll find the answers to all the questions you ever wanted to ask, with topics like:

Stereotypes ― the facts and fiction
Coming out as LGBT
Where to meet people like you
The ins and outs of gay sex
Stereotypes ― the facts and fiction
How to flirt
And so much more!
This candid, funny, and uncensored exploration of sexuality and what it's like to grow up LGBTQ also includes real stories from people across the gender and sexual spectrums, not to mention hilarious illustrations.

You will be entertained. You will be informed. But most importantly, you will know that however you identify (or don't) and whomever you love, you are exceptional. You matter. And so does this book.

This book is for:

Anyone with questions
Parents of gay kids and other LGBT youth
Educators looking for advice about the LGBTQIA+ community




Best Non-fiction Book I have Ever Read

This book is the best Non-fiction book I have ever read. This book is amazing because even if you are not part of the LGBTQIA+ community you are still welcome and allowed to read and it gives a lot of good information and dismisses a lot of harsh stereotypes surrounding the community. Every sentence in this book made me want to scream in joy every single word Juno Dawson put on that page was like a little message to me and it just made me want to read more.

Even though, this book and the pages say it loud and clear (It says this is the manual you receive after coming out) it still welcomes everyone (in the back it says these words “Lesbian. Gay. Bisexual. Transgender. Queer. Straight. Curious”). Which is one of the reasons I love this book and its author even more.

This is probably one of the most informational books I have ever read (except for school textbooks). Juno Dawson says she spent around 1 to 3 years gathering information, personal stories, and surveys to make up the context of this book. Every single word is full of facts and the truth, which is sometimes hard to hear in this book. It crushes most stereotypes surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community but it has also helped me learn about things to never do and never say.

If you read this book and want to go deeper into the different types of genders in this book. What’s the T? By Juno Dawson will be perfect for you.
