I’ve been meaning to read this ever since it came out last year and I’m so happy I finally did, I couldn’t put it down once I started so good.

This was very interesting to listen to. Such a different life and experience than mine and I really enjoyed learning from this author what their life has looked like.

Love Matthew's story, him finding his place as a Black Man, as a Black Queer Man was great. Meeting his village, meeting his Nanny was amazing! Anyone struggling as a queer person in the world needs to read this, anyone struggling to accept a queer person in their lives needs to read this!!

Me parece una historia muy importante de leer porque aborda varios temas: la familia, la amistad, la identidad (de género y como individuo; esa duda de quién eres y qué haces en este mundo), la masculinidad tóxica, el hecho de ser queer y negarlo y negarte a ti mismo. Habla sobre el abuso, la exploración de la sexualidad, sobre el consentimiento, el perdón, la aceptación y el amor propios, entre muchos otros temas que resuenan, de cierto modo, con el lector.

Es evidente que no puedo sentirme identificada al cien por ciento con lo que cuenta Johnson en sus memorias, pero como él dice: escribió esto por si hay ahí afuera algún chico queer y negro que se sienta solo y sin un lugar en este mundo.

This memoir was so beautifully written, emotional, and heartfelt. Johnson captivated me from the very beginning and through larger and smaller nuggets, taught me a lot along the way. Such a reminder of how much representation and normalization matter.

I always love an opportunity to learn about intersectionality. This book is very well written and engaging.
