Replace False Belief with Knowledge and Understanding

"You Can Tell Just By Looking", by Michael Bronski, Ann Pellegrini and Michael Amico, examines and debunks 20 common myths about "LGBT life and people". By asking questions that are part of the national conversation on homosexuality, gender-identity and lifestyle, this book from Beacon Press answers questions, provokes re-examination of oneself and inspires transformative conversations.

Is "gaydar" real? Are homosexuals born that way? Do all religions condemn homosexuality? Are Transgender people mentally ill? Do gay rights infringe on religious liberty? Are all transgender people gay? Do Hate Crime Laws prevent violence against gay people? These and other topics used by both sides in the pro/anti gay equality debate are addressed. Some of the answers might surprise you; all of them will replace myth with information.

Learn about how the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) combats discrimination against and unequal treatment of the LBGTQ community, and its efforts for social justice in its many forms.
