Based on the hugely popular blog of the same name, Born This Way shares 100 different memories of growing up LGBTQ. Childhood photographs are accompanied by sweet, funny, and at times heartbreaking personal stories. Collected from around the world and dating from the 1940s to today, these memories speak to the hardships of an unaccepting world and the triumph of pride, self-love, and self-acceptance. This intimate little book is a wonderful gift for all members of the LGBTQ community as well as their friends and families. Like Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, Born This Way gives young people everywhere the courage to say, "Yes, I'm gay. And I was born this way. I've known it since I was very young, and this is my story."

A very sweet book; of course, there are some sad stories of people who are not accepted by their families after coming out, but most of these are stories of gay people who are looking back fondly at themselves in their childhoods, point of which being to reinforce the fact that they were "Born this way." Engagingly cute photos (most "adorkable"). Fun to read, over all.
