Here! We're Queer! Get Used to Us!
Survival Strategies
for a Hostile World
(ISBN 1-59457-317-4) can be purchased

News reports of anti-gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered violence, especially the media coverage of the brutal murders of Teena Brandon and Matthew Shepard, leave us feeling hopeless.

We're Here! We're Queer! Get Used to Us! Survival Strategies for a Hostile World provides an antidote to this sense of hopelessness by showing how LGBT people have successfully defended themselves against homophobic comments, threatening situations, and violence.

We're Here! We're Queer! Get Used to Us! Survival Strategies for a Hostile World also includes a chapter describing same-sex intimate abuse and violence and includes examples of how GLBT people get out of damaging relationships.

Untangling the Knot: Queer Voices on Marriage, Relationships & Identity
(OpenBook) Paperback – February 28, 2015
by Carter Sickels (Editor)

Untangling the Knot: Marriage, Relationships & Identity, an anthology of essays and creative nonfiction, delves past the mainstream focus on marriage equality―beyond the knot― to examine the broad scope of issues facing members of the LGBTQ community. The collection sheds light on what marriage equality actually means for queer communities. By confronting the concept of tradition through personal discourse, this volume seeks to create conversation amongst the diverse members of the LGBTQ community and their straight allies to prompt a larger, grander, and more realistic vision of what marriage equality really means for those living in the United States. Untangling the Knot: Marriage, Relationships & Identity includes the voices of many individuals who are underrepresented in the modern discourse surrounding LGBTQ rights, and these unique perspectives may change the direction of that conversation for good.
