When it finds a publisher willing to publish it.

The first publisher wanted the omission of some things I felt would be an extreme problem having omitted (namely, the chapter on pregnanacy and reproduction, as well as an outline of all reproductive options, and the chapter on birth control. There were other issues, but these were the primary ones).

Unfortunately, the political/publishing climate is such that right now, a forthright, gender and orientation inclusive sexuality guide for young adults is NOT something publishers of any decent size or scope have been willing to even consider, to the point that my agent can't even get them to read the manuscript, because the ditors at those houses know their higher-ups would just nix it.

So, as soon as he manages to find a publisher who WILL be willing to take a risk and publish it, I can give you a date. Until that time, there's just no predicting.
