Written by straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people and those that care about them, 50 Ways to Support Gay and Lesbian Equality is a compendium of informative, joyful, practical and poignant essays by well-known experts and leaders, each promoting understanding while suggested simple actions. Issues include:

• Defining terminology (What a tranny? What’s gay baiting?)
• Exploring family issues (“Should I come out to my parents on Thanksgiving?” “How can I support a lesbian couple who want to have children?”)
• How to support gay rights around the world

A timely and much-needed guide, 50 Ways demonstrates positive ways for both straight and gay people to respond to everyday discrimination and misunderstandings, bringing the world closer to the true meaning of equality.

The third book in the series—50 Ways to Support Lesbians and Gays—features 50 personal, inspiring essays with “Action Guide” sidebars collected by bestselling Meredith Maran and series editor Angela Watrous.

Great Resource Like the previous reviewer, I am also a contributor to this anthology. This being said, I found this to be a helpful resource with a lot of potential.
