Hint: You can find the control key on the bottom left hand side of the keyboard, marked Ctrl.

It’s also a powerful focal point for thinking and talking about books that deal with the lives and issues of GLBT individuals. How does a novel, poem, play, or essay address equality, sexuality, and gender? And what does that mean to us, the readers?
