The Letter Q: Queer Writers’ Notes to their Younger Selves “was conceived as part of the response to a spate of suicides among LGBT youth that revealed how vulnerable and isolated these teens often still are….The Letter Q takes this one step further by moving beyond the simple platitude of “it gets better” to tell a deeper and more personal story for each of its contributors. Each letter is like a tightly focused biography, where the writer reveals an aspect of his or herself that speaks to the heart of what’s important to LGBT teens.”

These moving stories could reach every straight and LGBT kid you know or work with and might help save a life. Half of the royalties from the sale will go towards supporting The Trevor Project mission of reaching LGBT and questioning youth in crisis.

I never dreamed I’d be in the company of such a stellar, award-winning group. I’m thrilled to be one of the contributors!
