This book explores the growing up experiences of gay and lesbian individuals within their homes, schools, neighbourhoods, among friends; and their journeys of finding themselves and their communities while living in a heterosexually constructed society. It is based on an exploratory, qualitative study with young gay and lesbian persons in two cities of Maharashtra, India and employs a life course perspective. The author has written this book from two primary loci: those of a mental health professional and activist, and a queer feminist activist. Through layered narratives and psychosocial analyses of experiences that are simultaneously attentive to subjectivities and to social and interpersonal processes, the author provides insights into the lives of children who grow up feeling ´different´ from their siblings, peers and friends, and receive constant messages about correct ways of being and expression from their parents, teachers, friends and counsellors/doctors; the unique challenges to growing up as gay or lesbian, alongside complex processes involved in the decision of ´coming out´; and the experience of meeting others like oneself, forming intimate, romantic relationships, bonds of friendship, political solidarity, families of choice and so on. In this book, the author employs a critical stance towards mainstream life span development studies, developmental psychology, child development and childhood studies that make universal assumptions of heteronormativity and gender binarism. This book is of interest to a wide readership, from psychologists, mental health and human rights scholars, to scholars of youth and childhood studies, gender studies, cultural studies, social work, sociology and anthropology.

When Todd Daniels is pulled over on the Los Angeles freeway, he knows its all over. Hes driving a stolen car at 100 mph, hes high, and hes on his way to sleep with his best friends girl. Its been a night of bad decisions, and judging by the big black stud in his rearview mirror, his luck has finally run out. Or has it? When he tries to bribe the officer, the big man gives him a choice: Spend the night giving up his anal virginity or spend the night in jail. Todds disgusted by the offer. Hes straight! Hed never let himself be used that way. Well, maybe if its just this once... ----- Excerpt ----- I scooped my wallet off the dashboard of Johnnys corvette and fumbled for an interminable moment with my ID. He snagged it from my hands, and then asked for the registration. Uh, I started, you know I think it-- He gave my card the most cursory of glances. Todd Daniels. You know youre in a lot of trouble, right? My heart stopped. I could not force the air into my lungs. N-no, I, I, I-- You, you, you stole this car, he said. There was no malice in his voice, just a cold, merciless truth. My knuckles went white on the steering wheel. How do you-- Car was flagged an hour ago. I knew as soon as I saw the plates. Apparently the owner is a friend of yours. Or used to be, I guess. Look, I tried, this is all a misunderstanding. I was just borrowing-- His piercing eyes cut me off. He unclipped a plastic square from his belt and clicked it. I squinted into the glare of a harsh white LED. Just like that, the grin was back, and this time it was real. Mmm. Its a bad night for you, buddy. Now, just wait a second-- The laugh shook his giant shoulders. Look at that, a seconds come and gone. Should have taken a second before you jacked the corvette. Dude, please, I said. Ill do anything! I cant go to prison. He tapped the car door with his nightstick. Technically, you go to jail first. Then its prison. Nothing too bad happens in jail, Todd. Prisons the nasty one. Cute white boy like you. He shook his head, and offered a sympathetic tsking sound. Bad times. Very bad. Mr. Lewis, I can pay-- The words fell out of my mouth as his fingers flicked the lock in the door, wrenched the handle, and grabbed me by the shoulder. Of course I wasnt wearing a seatbelt, so he had no trouble yanking me from my seat. The toes of my Ferragamos were soon scraping the beveled asphalt. He wrenched me against the corvette. Are you trying to bribe me, money man? I clutched at his steely wrist. No! I shouted. Unless youre into it... He wrenched me hard enough to send me on a one-way trip to the pavement. Just before I hit, he pulled me back, and banged me against the trunk. I breathed a sigh of relief, then winced when I saw hed snapped the button on my heathered Isaia. Behind Officer Lewis, the cars zoomed past at seventy miles an hour. My skull was almost thrown into that speeding meat grinder. The sound was deafening, a roar of endless Angelenos racing to their destinations. Yet I still heard his next words, like a whisper in my ear. Oh, Im into it, he said, and softly dragged his thumb over my lip. I slapped the hand away. Yo! I cried. What the hell? His eyes were hungry. You know exactly what the hell.
