All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M Johnson

All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M Johnson – 5/5⭐️

Wow! This book was everything. The writing, the stories, the vulnerability Johnson presents,.. incredible. I really felt for this young boy, teen, and young adult as Johnson took us through what it’s like growing up as a queer Black man. It’s targeted toward the YA demographic but I think it’s an excellent read for anyone. I’ve also heard excellent things about the audiobook, which Johnson himself narrates! Please add this to your TBR!

Here is the goodreads 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. All Boys Aren’t Blue covers topics such as gender identity, toxic masculinity, brotherhood, family, structural marginalization, consent, and Black joy.“
