A must-have for advocates of LGBT youth. Hyde’s seven chapters give a simple yet thorough overview of the history of LGBT political organizing in the United States, and present a “game plan” for up-and-coming activists on grassroots organizing methods. Chapters focus on such struggles as discrimination, violence and the application of religious principles to the LGBT lifestyle. The game plan sections suggest ways to start discussion groups, hold demonstrations, write letters to government representatives and provide support services. (617) 948-6584, http://www.beacon.org.
