It starts with hope. That’s what LGBTQ Centers all over the world give us, the hope, the community, the care and education we need in a world that is often hate filled, scared of the unknown, and downright scary. When first introduced to community many of us rejoice as it’s often the first time we’re able to be out and be our true selves without fear or shame. This anthology is for the benefit of one such center, one that touches many many lives, and like others, needs help and nourishment as well. Centers like the MKE LGBT Community Center depend on the love and support of others so that they may help and support us. Within this collection of stories, you will find hope, family, love, and community. Take a chance on a new author or one of your beloved… read, enjoy, and know that you are helping children, adults, teens, and elderly alike in our greater LGBTQ community! One hundred percent of the income from this volume goes directly to The MKE LGBT Community Center in Milwaukee, WI USA.
With such a great cause and with all the authors involved in the anthology, there was no way I was going to miss reading this book. What I discovered was the stories included were just as unique and different as the authors who wrote them. The youth based LGBT theme with a heavy M/M presence was something new for me to read, and though I don’t usually enjoy reading youth aged books (“usually”) this book took me for quite a surprise. I enjoyed every story and looked forward to passing it on to others and giving my recommendation to friends for them and their teens to read. NOH8 is about embracing equality and it was a heavy theme with many of the authors. There were several stories that stood out to me, and I hope that others get as much out of the book as I did. I also hope that what they take away from the pages is something they can pass on to others… LOVE, HOPE & NOH8!
