Let’s Get This Straight: The Ultimate Handbook for Youth with LGBTQ Parents by Tina Fakhrid-Deen is focused on supporting and empowering children whose parents identify as LGBTQ. According to a recent review, Fakhrid-Deen opens a dialogue for children of LGBTQ families. The author emphasizes how teasing, ignorance, fear, hostility, homophobia, and hatred from the community can impact kids in LGBTQ families. She also discusses challenges and injustice that may result from being a child with sexual minority parents. School, religion, and basically all social interactions are covered. According to the reviewer, this book is aimed at youths and at times the reading is slightly complicated for the ages that it targets.
