Journalist and activist George M. Johnson tells their story about growing up a queer black boy. The vivid memories Johnson revisits exhibit the dynamics of family, sexual discovery, and the sobering juxtaposition of navigating several identities. Johnson's easygoing pace and conversational language lend themselves to a deeper understanding of the queer experience, especially regarding gender identity, toxic masculinity, and marginalization. This memoir offers frank descriptions of bullying and explorations of societal expectations of black men that will leave listeners thinking long after the audiobook finishes. An inspiring, bittersweet story that encourages queer people and their allies to believe that they deserve to exist in a world that seeks to shut them out.
