I first read this book in my university's library so I would be an effective member of my University's gay straight alliance.
Although I had grown up in a tolerant household, there was never any political theory, but somehow I'm convinvced my parents had a psycic connection to this book. Every thing they had taught me about justice and fairness to people in general was supported by this book.
GLBT rights is not gay vs. straight or non-religious vs religion. It is equality vs. misinformation and intolerance. The world would be a much safer place for my friends if everybody read this book and took it's important moral lessons to hear

Mohr's book showcases a leading gay philosopher bringing his intellectual tools to bear on how society should think about issues like prejudice, sexual privacy, same-sex marriage, AIDS, and gays in the military. Mohr was inspired to write the book as a guide to how lesbians and gays can talk about these issues with their friends and public servants. But the quality of Mohr's writing and thought allow the individual essays to stand on their own as valuable commentaries, and make the book as a whole an important and accessible treatise on the range of issues where gays as citizens confront a polity often lacking not in empathy but in information.
