Steven Petrow's Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners: The Definitive Guide to LGBT Life

Steven Petrow's Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners: The Definitive Guide to LGBT Life
$17.95
A big book of manners for the more than 15 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the United States and Canada and the people who love them, work with them, and live with them. Written by Steven Petrow, the go-to authority on the subject--he's the same-sex wedding expert at The New York Times and a columnist for The Huffington Post, Yahoo's Shine, GayWeddings.com, and the "Q" Syndicate (with distribution to more than 100 LGBT newspapers and websites)--this is the definitive book of LGBT etiquette.

Encyclopedic in its approach, filled with practical wisdom, lively wit, and much insight, Steven Petrow's Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners covers everything: from coming out to being out in the workplace; from dealing with the joy and complexity of same-sex weddings and commitment ceremonies (including how to propose and write meaningful vows) to handling the legal paperwork every couple needs. There's a chapter on sex etiquette, and another on the challenges and opportunities of raising a family, plus sections on travel, bullying, entertaining, meeting new friends, introducing your partner to your family, a primer on gay pride, and so much more.

Throughout there are hundreds of questions--some posed by LGBT folk, and others by straight people: What do the mothers of two brides wear to a lesbian wedding? What do you say to an anti-gay joke? How do you answer "Who's the father?" when there are two mothers?

Manners, yes, but with a twist.

**In recognition of Quality, Excellence, and Design, this ebook has been granted a QED seal of approval from Digital Book World.**
