Queer Questions Straight Talk

Queer Questions Straight Talk: 108 Frank & Provocative Questions It’s OK to Ask Your Lesbian, Gay or Bi Loved One
Abby Dees

It has been my experience that heterosexual loved ones are afraid to ask certain questions for fear of hurting feelings, offending someone, or for being seen as prying. Queer Questions Straight Talk is a wonderful tool to bypass these negative feelings. Giving the book to a straight loved one is tantamount to giving them permission to ask the hard questions. The volume’s instructions remind people not to ask questions they don’t want to know the answer to and to not answer anything that would make the questioner uncomfortable. If everyone follows those simple rules, the conversations resulting from this book’s questions will truly enhance mutual understanding. This is a great book—give it to someone who is struggling with a sense of alienation from those they love, simply because they don’t know how to talk about “it.” St. Lynn’s Press (, —Review: Angel Curtis
