Steve Petrows Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners Summary


Steve Petrows Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners by Steven Petrow

Encyclopedic in its approach, filled with practical wisdom, lively wit, and much insight, Steven Petrow's "Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners" covers everything: from coming out to being out in the workplace; from dealing with the joy and complexity of same-sex weddings and commitment ceremonies (including how to propose and write meaningful vows) to handling the legal paperwork every couple needs. There's a chapter on sex etiquette, and another on the challenges and opportunities of raising a family, plus sections on travel, bullying, and entertaining, meeting new friends, introducing your partner to your family, a primer on gay pride, and so much more. Throughout there are hundreds of questions - some posed by LGBT folk, and others by straight people: What do the mothers of two brides wear to a lesbian wedding? What do you say to an anti-gay joke? How do you answer "Who's the father?" when there are two mothers?
