Born This Way

Real Stories of Growing Up Gay

About the Book

Based on the hugely popular blog of the same name, Born This Way shares more than 100 different memories of growing up LGBTQ. Childhood photographs are accompanied by sweet, funny, and at times heartbreaking personal stories. This intimate little hardcover 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 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.”
