"You Can Tell Just by Looking": And 20 Other Myths About LGBT Life and People

by Michael Bronski, Ann Pellegrini and Michael Amico - £12.99  Beacon Press (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780807042458 | ISBN 10: 0807042455

In You Can Tell Just by Looking, three scholars and activists come together to unpack enduring, popular, and deeply held myths about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, culture, and life in America.
 
Myths, such as "All Religions Condemn Homosexuality" and "Transgender People Are Mentally Ill," have been used to justify discrimination and oppression of LGBT people. Others, such as "Homosexuals Are Born That Way," have been embraced by LGBT communities and their allies.
 
In discussing and dispelling these myths including gay-positive ones the authors challenge readers to question their own beliefs and to grapple with the complexities of what it means to be queer in the broadest social, political, and cultural sense.
