Description

This program is read by the author.

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.

Both a primer for teens eager to be allies as well as a reassuring testimony for young queer men of color, All Boys Aren't Blue covers topics such as gender identity, toxic masculinity, brotherhood, family, structural marginalization, consent, and Black joy. Johnson's emotionally frank style of writing will appeal directly to young adults.

A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux

An Important Story

A unique point of view, and narrative not nearly told enough. A coming of age story steeped in nuance and identity.

All boys certainly aren't Blue

what an emotionally resonating story. So often do we find it challenging to find the right narrative to tell our story, but I found a start with this book. I definitely need to share this read with my friends

Page turner loves this book

Really enjoyed very transparent and so open I throughly enjoyed this book and related to some of the background from him being from my home town and state and hearing about his overall experience there definitely brought back some memories. I was so intrigued by the levels of vulnerability, complexity and over strength that was displayed to share such moments with the world. I am humbly grateful to be able to get a peak into his world through this novel.
