The new gay teenager

By Savin-Williams, Ritch C.

Publishers Summary:
Adolescence is no picnic - but is it especially hard for gay teens? This book reveals that being young and homosexual is not the identity crisis we might expect. Today's teenagers are more at ease with homosexuality - and with a more flexible and shifting view of human sexuality in general - than their parents' and grandparents' generation. In this down-to-eath book, the standard image of gay youth presented by mental health researchers - as depressed, isolated, drug-dependent, even suicidal - may have been exaggerated even twenty years ago, and is far from accurate today. Based on personal histories and intimate interviews.
