Abstract:
"Activist Miles McKenna came out on his YouTube channel in 2017, documenting his transition to help other teens navigate their identities and take charge of their own coming out stories. From that wisdom comes Out!, the ultimate YA guide to the queer lifestyle. Find validation, inspiration, and support for your questions big and small--whether you're exploring your identity or seeking to understand the experience of an awesome queer person in your life"-- Provided by publisher.

Now a queer and trans activist, McKenna came out on his YouTube channel in 2015, then transitioned online in 2017. His aim was to help other teens navigate their identities and take charge of their own coming out stories. Here he has created a YA guide to the queer lifestyle, covering questions big and small. From staying safe in a toxic environment, McKenna offers coming-out conversation starters, resources, pointers for being a queer ally, and his own "Ten Commandments" for life. -- adapted from back cover
