Descrizione prodotto


Overall the book is fantastically presented with truly inspirational stories that will leave you with a sense of admiration for the strengh and bravery of the contributors. The book will make a ideal gift for any of your gay friends or parents of children or young people who are gay. --Allaboutme dot com, October, 2012......Much like the It Gets Better project, BORN THIS WAY lends to that example, not only within the GLBTX community, but far far beyond it as well. For anyone who isn't gay, I still think books like BORN THIS WAY are extremely important. I hope it inspires understanding, acceptance, and support of the GLBTX youth around us who might be looking for a little kindness. Together, let's erase the hate, and make the world a better place. I recently saw an interview with the mother of Matthew Shepard, in which she said that parents of gay teens are often not surprised when their children come out. If you think, or know, your son or daughter is gay, have this book on the shelf for them. It may bring great comfort to them, not only in reading it, but as another small gesture of acceptance they need from you. --Alisons bookmarks, October, 201.....Based on the Born This Way blog, the anthology reveals funny and heartbreaking stories of those growing up LGBTQ, accompanied by childhood photographs. --Los Angeles magazine, October, 2012.....Each one of the stories included in the book comes with a cute little picture of the teller at that age. Covering every time period from the forties up until the present day, the stories cover a variety of ages, with each one being a unique insight into how that person grew up. The book, collated by Paul Vitagliano, is due to go on sale at the beginning of October, with writers including drag superstar Jackie Beats, singer Sia, make-up artist Billy B, Erasure lead vocalist Andy Bell, and legendary gossiper Perez Hilton. These are all mixed in with stories of the LGBTQ community from all over the world. We can t wait for the opportunity to read just how it conveys the message, Yes, I m gay. And I was born this way. I ve know it since I was very young and this is my story . -- --SoSoGay, October, 2012

Aesthetically it s a great little book: a regular sized coffee table book to give to your friends or family to show your support or just because you love them for being who they are. Even as someone who isn t gay I found great inspiration reading stories from people who aren t afraid to just be themselves no matter what --Bookishbelle, October, 2012

Based on the Born This Way blog, the anthology reveals funny and heartbreaking stories of those growing up LGBTQ, accompanied by childhood photographs. --Los Angeles magazine, October, 2012...is a charming collection of memories of LGBTQ childhoods in the USA, spanning 1943-1998. With a lovely, retro design and vintage photos BTW is affirming, sweet and humorous; a very personal piece of queer history. Every library should have a copy. -- --DIVA, November, 2012

A super cute collection of Stateside coming of age stories, the key to this books charm is the analouge photography. Camp kids are snapped for school pictures, favourite fancy dress outfits and there's lots of baton twirling. Ooh, there ain't no other way. --Gay Times, November, 2012

AMAZING!! 13 ottobre 2012
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
I received this book at it's Release party that was hosted by the Author, D.J. Paul V., along with CoCo Peru, Jackie Beat, Frank DeCaro and several other contributors to this wonderful Book.

These are real stories of real people in the world, who even today are still not accepted by family or friends because they are Gay "It's a Travesty"
Their stories are funny, thoughtful, painful and Brave - This book is not only for those who are Gay, it's for everyone who has a Gay family member, friend or yourself.

This book gives a voice & a look at those folks who have been through this and to all those who are still trying to find their voice and wonder if they will be accepted for who they are!!

Simply put This book say's "YES", You, Me & We were BORN THIS WAY!

Free At Last... 15 ottobre 2012
Di Peter Cabot - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
For every one of us sissies who's had one of "those pictures" which we pushed to the back of the photo album hoping none of our relatives would make it back that far, this book is a Declaration of Independence--a call to arms for gay kids and adults everywhere to be themselves!

It is about time the stories (and pictures) from our formative years are told and seen. Moving in that direction, BORN THIS WAY is a delightful, insightful and moving account of brave souls finding (and oftentimes fighting) their way to self-hood and self-respect.

Kudos to Mr. Vitagliano for this book and his website. BORN THIS WAY has already found a proud and prominent place on my bookshelf.

What an amazing little book 23 ottobre 2012
Di J. Balma - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
This is a great find! Colorful, clever, funny and moving. I read it wondering how my teen years might have been different if only I'd had a copy to refer to way back when. I sent my copy to a 14 year old boy who is getting bullied in a small town for being gay (his teacher is an old friend). I think it will help him to understand that he is not alone. Big thanks to the author for dreaming this up!

Real Stories od Growing Up Gay 25 gennaio 2013
Di Sheila A. Dechantal - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
Paul Vitagliano knows first hand what it is like to grow up gay. Even in today's day and age it is still hard to find acceptance without judgement so in 2011 Paul started the blog site "Born This Way" which is a place to share stories and support for the LGBTQ community. The blog exploded with responses, so much so... Paul wrote this book, Born This Way, filling it with pictures of boys and girls at young ages and their stories about when they knew and what it was like when (and if) they came out and told their families and friends.

The short stories share what growing up was like. In some cases there was name calling and bullying which led to many of these children keeping to themselves and doing anything they could to avoid conflict.

The book is a quick read, the stories are short and sometimes funny, and sometimes heart breaking. In many cases, by the time they told family and friends, they had known and were just waiting for them to tell them. In other more heartbreaking (and thankfully rare) circumstances, families turned their backs... not understanding. Yet story after story no matter what the outcome, each person said life was so much better once they said it out loud and were their true selves.

This book is a short read but a powerful one. I smiled at the stories, occasionally laughed, and yes, at times my heart broke a little too. Everyone deserves to be accepted and Paul Vitagliano has taken great steps towards doing just that.
