We Are the Youth Book Donation Campaign

We started We Are the Youth so that LGBTQ youth would know that they are not alone. We want to ensure that those same youth are able to read our book, even if they aren’t able to cover the $19.99 cost. Inspired by a similar campaign by the wonderful Janet Mock, we are connecting those who want to donate books to LGBTQ youth, with organizations that serve them.

*Our official book-sharing campaign has ended, so please email if you’d like to purchase a copy of the book for donation to an individual or an organization and we will ship the book directly.
