Realizing you're gay when you're young can be very scary. Way before you're proud and out, there are all these treacherous land mines to navigate. The editors of XY, the sexy-hip magazine for boys, have put together The XY Survival Guide (XY Publishing, 172 pages, $9.95) to help lube the transition. It's full of information for teen queers on coming out, hanging out, drugs, STDs and so on. I spoke recently with XY's Benjie Nycum.
