Voices of LGBTQMascot Books announces the release of Voices of LGBTQ+: A Conversation Starter for Understanding, Supporting, and Protecting Gay, Bi, Trans, and Queer People by Lynda Wolters.

Why do so many people reject those who are different?

Though the mainstream acceptance of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Queer community has improved over the past few years, many groups within our society still respond to the LGBTQ+ community with an overwhelming reaction of “us” vs. “them.”

Despite progress, hatred, misunderstanding, aggression, hate, and violence still affect this community deeply. A strong ally, Lynda Wolters knows firsthand: she has come to have a deep respect for the community through her son, who is gay.

Including highly personal anecdotes, Voices of LGBTQ+ outlines some of the most critical challenges the community faces today, with insights into:

  • Homelessness
  • Hate crimes
  • Suicide
  • Economic challenges
  • Discrimination and lack of equality
  • Religious and biblical conflicts

Though judgment and divisiveness still run deep, Wolters highlights the first key distinction that will help eradicate bigotry: those who are different are not choosing to be, they are, and our differences make us stronger.

Voices of LGBTQ+ helps educate, dispel fears, and start positive conversations about what knowing, loving, or simply peacefully and positively coexisting with someone in the LGBTQ+ community truly means.
