Book description:

In this collection of over thirty essays, gays, lesbians, and bisexuals look back at their school days -- some with wry humor, others with acknowledged pain. Most find that they are still trying to unlearn a basic lesson imparted by the educational system to homosexuals: Hate yourself. The personal memoirs collected here are sharp and varied, detailing everything from valiant struggles during the pre-Stonewall days to the isolation of sissies and tomboys, the violence and harassment that became numbingly common on playgrounds, and the love stories that made young students hopeful that there was a better life outside of school.

Telling Tales Out of School: Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals Revisit Their School Days Essay




I wanted to wish this book more, but it seemed that rather a few of the memoirs were level and truly non that interesting. I did experience for some of the people in this book because I remember how tramatic my in-between school old ages were. Is there truly a more panic filled clip than anybodies Middle School old ages? One facet of the book I thought was a great touch was the exposure of each writer demoing how they looked at that clip and now. Puting a face to the psyches truly helped do me experience for the author. Stating Tales Out of School by Kevin Jennings ( 2000 ) 371.8266 TEL
