This book illustrates the ways that children growing up to be gay are harmed by homophobia before anyone, including themselves, even knows they are gay. This compelling and sympathetic volume describes many simple ways that these children can be helped to understand that they can grow up to lead normal lives, with hopes and dreams for their futures. How Homophobia Hurts Children: Nurturing Diversity at Home, at School, and in the Community brings home the voices of these children. They describe what it was like to discover that the degrading words about homosexuals they've heard all their lives were directed at themselves.To view an excerpt online, find the book in our QuickSearch catalog at www.HaworthPress.com.
