Abstract:

Athletes, painters, class presidents, and performing artists, the people in Adam Mastoon's compelling portraits recount experiences that are as diverse as their backgrounds. One man recounts his religious family's struggle to accept his gay identity. Another tells of the challenge to reconcile her bisexuality with her Asian-American heritage. Others recall the solace of long afternoons in the library devouring books that assured them that they were not alone. Together these candid accounts of navigating adolescence express the fundamental need we all share for acceptance and freedom of expression.
