Feeling good inside and out should be everyone's goal. But lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people often have a tougher time of it as they grapple with issues such as shame, rejection, and low self-esteem. This book discusses the unique pressures that lead too many LGBT youth to alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse as well as eating disorders, unsafe sex, and unwanted pregnancy. Learn how to cope with feelings of alienation and depression, confusion about gender and orientation, and the struggle to integrate your sexual and gender identity with your larger self. Liking yourself for who you are is the key to getting and staying physically healthy. And having the support of family, friends, or trusted mentors can make all the difference for LGBT people learning to respect themselves and each other to lead healthy, happy, and productive lives.
