June 2021 Book of the Month

All Boys Aren't Blue


2021-06-28 1 min read

       I wanted to highlight a prominent writer and LGBTQIA+ activist George M. Johnson and his book All Boys Aren’t Blue for June’s Book of the month 📚. Stories of our Queer brothers and sisters are important each and every day but I would be remiss not to feature a queer author during pride month. Check this book out or share this post because you never know who may need this.  Here's a little insight on what the book entails:


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.
