Description

Growing Up Gay: A Youth Liberation Pamphlet combines deeply personal coming-out stories with empowering calls to action directed at young readers. Bringing together the personal and the political, the Youth Liberation activists tell their own stories and demand that their parents, peers, and schools give them the respect they deserve. One story, "Struggling With Myself in a Repressive Society," expresses a journey to "strength and openness" and explains that being out is a challenge not only to oneself, but also to one's repressive society. The second section, "Start a Gay Group," stresses the social and political importance of gay organizations, and the third section discusses the difficulties of coming out to one's family. Concluding with an extensive list of resources, the pamphlet urges young gay and lesbian activists to fight multiple forms of oppression, including those based on age and sexuality
