That's so gay! It's a phrase commonly heard in school halls and on playgrounds. But when used as a put-down, it's also homophobic. With plenty of quizzes, Q+As, comics and scenarios, this interactive and highly visual new book in the Deal With It series helps kids determine what is—and what isn't—homophobia and what they can do to make their schools, homes and communities more safe and inclusive for everyone.
