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

Love at 1st read

I’m not much of a reader and I wanted to start a new habit by reading 1 book a week. This was my first book. I laughed. I teared. I reflected. And lastly, I finished this work feeling empowered and validated.

A beautifully important coming of age story

A must-listen for Black Black queer young adults, and for those who walk with them (us). Blessings and '06!

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.

Required reading

I would’ve purchased the paperback, but I had 5 Audible credits, so I decided to use them here. Moved, delighted and entertained is the best way to describe my reaction to this memoir-manifesto by George M. Johnson (a.k.a. Matt). Kudos to the author for finding his voice and courage to share his truth with us. As a cisgender woman, I learned so much. It never dawned on me how one-sided sex education is, until George shared his side of what was missing. And I know that queer boys will learn from this story and be able to have a place to turn to with their questions—and find answers. My husband heard me listening to the book and asked: Is that your gay frat brother? Me: No, he’s not a Que. But he’s still fam because 1. he’s a writer. 2. he’s black 3. he’s an HBCU alum and 4. he’s Greek. OOP-PHI! #hbcumade

Mixed emotions.

I was out fifteen years before George was born. Hearing all he, and others, endured is depressing after decades of trying to make things easier for those like George and still all the old pain and suffering persists. I’m still very hopeful, you just have to be.

I enjoyed it but I am not the target audience

I enjoyed this memoir but I felt that there was sooooo much exposition to the point where it was exhausting. I think it felt that way for me because I'm not its target audience. Overall, the memoir was beautiful and is needed.
