Most recently, in January 2022, Alexis published ‘Queer Up: An Uplifting Guide to LGBTQ+ Love, Life and Mental Health’, with chapters on questioning, coming out, friends and family, love, sex, shame, pride and allyship, this is insightful, thoughtful and reassuring book is essential reading for any questioning teen and their allies looking to support them.
