Deal with it and turn prejudice into pride
From the Series Lorimer Deal With It
That’s so gay! It’s a phrase commonly heard in school halls and playgrounds. But when used as a put-down, it’s also homophobic. With plenty of quizzes, Q+As, comics, and scenarios, this interactive and highly visual new book in the Deal With It series helps kids determine what is—and what isn’t—homophobia, and what they can do to make their schools, homes, and communities more safe and inclusive for everyone.
