Homophobia: Deal With It and Turn Prejudice into Pride is one of the titles in the Deal With It Series created to assist adolescents with everyday conflicts in their lives and promotes peaceful resolution.  This title examines how students can effectively deal with homophobia. The book covers how to take action against homophobic behaviours whether the student is the homophobe, the target, or the witness. The various forms of homophobia are defined with easy to understand examples presented in comic format, a quiz, letters to a Conflict Counsellor, do's and don’ts, and tips on how to deal with these issues.  Suggested activities that demonstrate how to cope with bullying, teasing or harassing behaviours are provided as well as a resource guide for follow-up activities.  This is a valuable student resource for dealing with homophobic behaviour at the classroom level and replacing it with acceptance and respect.  The cartoon illustrations are effective and inclusive showing male and female students from a variety of cultural and religious groups.
