All Boys Aren't Blue

Unflinching, vulnerable, and so resilient, this memoir by George M. Johnson really touched my heart. You must read All Boys Aren’t Blue!!!
 

When people ask me how I got into activism, I often say,
“The first person you are ever an activist for is yourself.”
If I wasn’t gonna fight for me, who else was?

— George M. Johnson

 

Publisher’s Synopsis:

“In a series of personal essays, prominent journalist and LGBTQIA+ activist George M. Johnson explores his childhood, adolescence, and college years in New Jersey and Virginia. From the memories of getting his teeth kicked out by bullies at age five, to flea marketing with his loving grandmother, to his first sexual relationships, this young-adult memoir weaves together the trials and triumphs faced by Black queer boys.”
 

Review:

I loved this (audio)book!

Unflinching, vulnerable, and so resilient, this memoir really touched my heart. I hope everyone gives this one a try, and practices compassion and open-mindedness. To hear in detail what not only a Black man goes through growing up, but a queer man as well – it’s impressive that people are capable of such strength of character. Thank you to the author for being so willing to share your experience and soul, so that others may be helped in their journey of self-discovery!

Narration: All Boys Aren’t Blue is read by the author, which I feel is a must for a memoir, and adds so much to the personal nature of the story being told. I loved hearing this through the voice of George M. Johnson!
