Adolescence is a difficult time, but it can be particularly stressful for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer-identifying youth. In order to avoid harassment and rejection, many LGBTQ teens hide their identities from their families, peers, and even themselves.

Drawing on two waves of interviews conducted six years apart, Sadowski chronicles how queer youth, who were often OC silencedOCO in school and elsewhere, now can approach adulthood with a strong, queer voice.
In a Queer Voice continues the critical conversation about LGBTQ youth issuesOCofrom bullying and suicide to other risks involving drug and alcohol abuseOCoby focusing on the factors that help young people develop positive, self-affirming identities. Using the participantsOCO heartfelt, impassioned voices, we hear what schools, families, and communities can do to help LGBTQ youth become resilient, confident adults.
