            'I marked the day in my adolescent diary with a single blank page.' 'The mantle of queer migrant compelled me to keep going - to go further.' 'I never came out to my parents. I felt I owed them no explanation.' 'All I heard from the pulpit were grim hints.' 'I became acutely awar...e of the parts of myself that were unpalatable to queers who grew up in the city.' 'I was thirty-eight and figured it was time to come out to her.' 'That's when I know it's not going anywhere - the gay.' 'I felt like I had been dunked into an episode of The L Word and I wasn't given the script.' 'No amount of YouTube videos and queer think pieces prepared me for this moment.' 'My queerness was born in a hot dry land that was never ceded.' 'I finally admitted what my feelings for Dirty Dancing-era Patrick Swayze had clearly been indicating for some time.' 'Even now, I sometimes think that I don't know my own desire.' Compiled by celebrated author and journalist Benjamin Law, Growing Up Queer in Australia assembles voices from across the spectrum of LGBTQIA+ identity. Spanning diverse places, eras, genders, ethnicities and experiences, these are the stories of growing up queer in Australia. 'For better or worse, sooner or later, life conspires to reveal you to yourself, and this is growing up.' With contributions from David Marr, Fiona Wright, Nayuka Gorrie, Steve Dow, Holly Throsby, Sally Rugg, Tony Ayres, Nic Holas, Rebecca Shaw, Giselle Au Nguyen and many more.

            Melbourne teenager Grace Halphen had a tough time transitioning to high school - she struggled to make friends and fit in. When she realised that this is a common experience, she wondered why she'd felt so alone. At thirteen, Grace embarked on a project to contact all the Austral...ian public figures she admires, asking them to provide advice to help teenagers navigate the inevitable ups and downs of adolescence. In Letter to My Teenage Self, more than 50 prominent Australians write heartfelt letters to their younger selves, passing on the wisdom they wish they'd had at the time. From learning to laugh at yourself (Adam Gilchrist), realising that the qualities that make you stand out are the ones that make you so rad (Missy Higgins), not letting the negatives shape who you become (Guy Sebastian), practising gratitude (Nathan Buckley), and the reassurance that you'll get over anger about people treating you badly because you'll get better at treating yourself well (Judith Lucy), Letter to My Teenage Self provides inspiration for parents and teenagers alike. Contributors include: Maggie Beer, Chris Judd, Judith Lucy, Matt Tilley, Adam Gilchrist, Jen Cloher, Jackie French, Missy Higgins, Nathan Buckley, Kate Ceberano, Josh Frydenberg, Layne Beachley, Stephanie Rice, David Koch, Guy Sebastian, Alice Pung, Dannii Minogue, Chet Faker, Shaun Tan, Richard Joseph Frankland, Lisa Mitchell, Jo Stanley, Peter Alexander. All profits from the sale of this book go to the REACH FOUNDATION, helping all teenagers reach their full potential.
