    While working at XY Magazine in San Francisco, Benjie met Mike Glatze. The two would end up being boyfriends for 10 years, until 2007, when Mike became an "ex-gay" and disawowed all his past and his love for Benjie...

    They founded Young Gay America in March, 2001, a project that saw them and another friend drive across Canada and the United States, interviewing over 1,500 queer teens about the experience of coming out and coping in high school. At a workshop at the recent Outgames human rights conference in Montreal, he shattered the myth that queer youth are simply victims of circumstance and oppression. Instead, he encouraged the audience to think of gay teens as "resilient... full of compassion, empathy and insight. Capable of strategic thinking and possessing new and flexible concepts of identity."

    Before starting Young Gay America, Benjie was Associate Publisher of the youth magazine XY and author of the Lambda Literary Award-Nominated book The XY Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Being Young & Gay. Benjie has volunteered for the Stop AIDS Project and the Gay & Lesbian National Hotline and has been a board member and designer for the Gay & Lesbian Community Center in San Francisco.

The respect and support young gay kids get from straight agencies and people is much higher than what the gay media or gay agencies give. In terms of The XY Survival Guide that has meant a lot more straight media coverage and institutions with straight people behind them wanting copies and being really supportive. I haven't heard very much from gay media. I've done a few gay radio interviews, and I know of one review written in a gay paper. Which is odd, since you'd think the gay press would be really happy about this, and we sent 300 review copies out to the gay press. The only resistance to the book so far has come from university gay groups, who refuse to review the book for some strange reasons, which I think have to do with the people in charge wanting to feel powerful enough to say no or something. I find that strange and sad. When I was writing and compiling the book, the straight agencies that deal with youth in general were overwhelmingly supportive, and the gay agencies were sorta, "Oh...uh-huh," and acted kinda snooty, like I was wasting their time. Even GLSEN [Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network], who provided a lot of the material and did a full review edit of the book at about the 85 percent completion phase, didn't want to do an endorsement on the back cover until they saw the final printed version?an impossible thing, since we would have to reprint to include their endorsement. I find that so strange, but maybe they had other benevolent and perhaps bureaucratic reasons.
