Some are the stories of famous people like Candace Gingrich and former NJ Gov. James McGreevy, others are the people behind familiar organizations like Kevin Jennings (founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network), and still others are "ordinary" folks

Through this, the story is narrated by a chorus of gay men who have died from AIDS. There's also another lesbian couple through the book, and even though it sets itself up for a heartbreaking conclusion, there are (spoiler alert!) no unhappy endings.

A mental health crisis faces American teens right now--and it is one we can solve. Hundreds of thousands of gay teens face traumatic depression, fear, rejection, persecution, and isolation--usually alone. Studies show they are 190 percent more likely to used drugs or alcohol and four times more likely to attempt suicide. Homophobia and discrimination are at the heart of their pain. Love, support, and acceptance--all within our power to give--can save them.

This book is for: clergy, parents, educators, and politicians who cause harm with their words and actions; parents of gay teens; teens navigating this difficult time; and fair-minded people who want to help end the harm. Here are revealing stories by forty diverse Americans, some well known and some not, plus insights from straight clergy and parents explaining their support of gay people as whole human beings guaranteed equal rights by our Constitution.


Reviews about Crisis: 40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social, and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing Up Gay in America (7):

Thank you for bringing to light the struggles of many teenagers as they "come out" to their family and faith communities, often to be rejected and persecuted by those most important to them. It should make all of us more aware of how our prejudices, often founded in religion, can be harmful to these very vulnerable young people.

Crisis, is a book about overcoming suffering, growing through prejudice and teaching those around us to take a look at popular beliefs and examine how those beliefs affect and harm innocent youth.

I encourage LGTB people to buy this book and read it for their own sense of strength and purpose, and then to pass it on to those who have harmed you. Even if they don't know they have harmed you. This is not an angry or vengeful book, but it does force the reader to take a serious look at their own beliefs about religion and sexuality.

I bought a copy of this book for myself and one for my local Gay Youth Organization (about 350 kids) to help them find their voices and to help them lead others. In my opinion it is one of the most important books everyone of every age can read today. The vast majority of heterosexual people simply do not know about the lives, persecution and suffering of the GLBT children and youth all around them. They need to know. GLBT kids are routinely treated in ways that are child abuse for every other child in the U.S.

Had to buy this for an LGBT anthropology course I was taking. Has some heartbreaking and truly enlightening stories that definitely aided in our class discussions. I only wish that more classes would require reading like this, especially for teenagers that might be struggling and able to relate with a few of these stories the most.

I read Crisis per the suggestion of our minister. This was in conjunction with reading Jack Rogers Jesus, the Bible and Homosexuality. Both of these books are must reads for anyone, and/or their families, struggling to reconcile sexual identity with their faith, especially when their faith experience labels them as abominations, sinners, etc. These books affirm that you are fine and accepted just the way God created you, whomever you perceive God to be.

It is also for those who believe the above labels are true within their faith experience, and for those who cannot understand homosexuality from any perspective. Please read with an open heart and mind. This issue is not a simple black or white issue. It involves people we all know and love.

Thank you,
Straight but not Narrow

This book was timely when published in the late 1990s, and in the rash of teen suicides from bullying because of perceived sexuality, it rings particularly true today. The enemy here is religious-based bigotry. There are a lot of success stories here of gay teens who survived this bullying, much in the vein of the "It Gets Better" campaign. But there are also heart-wrenching stories of parents who lost their children to suicide. This should be a required resource for all teachers and youth mentors, especially those in church settings.

This book ought to be read by every teacher, educational administrator, preacher, doctor, counselor, politician, judge, lawyer, policeman, sheriff, voter, businessman, human being in the world. It is an indictment of the status quo where sexual orientation is concerned. The commonality of repressive experiences is damning of the current social situation and repressive civil rights policies.
This should be required reading for every single person in this nation. This book contains stories of hardship, friendship, tolerance, acceptance and success... not to be missed. I could not put it down.
