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

    This is a MUST read. Seriously, if you don’t read anything else in 2021!

    Love love love! Thank you George and I can't wait to read your next book!
  • (5/5)
    I've gotta say, this book hit a lot of tough topics. From being a black kid in a predominantly white high-school, to denial about ones own identity, to having people close to you pass on, I mean, this was a heavy one.
    But, it was also necessary. Although it was rough, it was just as beautiful. George M. Johnson talks about his love for his family and about the healthy environment they built so that he can be different. So that he can be himself.
    I only have praise for "All Boys Aren't Blue" and I would suggest it to any friend of mine who wanted a look into the black, queer experience.

    What a read! I especially enjoyed the narrator's dramatic flair; just puts you in the scene. I'm glad he put aside his feelings of narcissism to enlighten us with his story.

    Brilliant, I am glad today teens get to read this book. I wish I had such an opportunity when I was a teen.
  • (5/5)
    I absolutely loved this book. The brutal honesty of the author, about what it means to be black and queer and to grow in a world where just being one of those (sometimes/most times) means fighting for acceptance and fitting in. I think some young people could relate and even those that don't can learn from other's experiences, learn to be better, to accept all, to teach future generations.
    I absolutely recommend this book. And if possible, listen to the audio-book! It's narrated by the author and he's just brilliant!

    With his voice so soothing, George gave me a really good look into his life , his family and love life. He touched on many things happening in society and taught me that truly "all boys aren't blue"

    I don’t feel right reviewing memoirs, especially not one like this—I am an entirely different person with entirely different life experiences. However, I will say that this is an unflinchingly honest book and I admire Johnson for putting everything out there. This is a great read for both Black Lives Matter and Pride. I would recommend this one.

    There's so much love in this book! The way George talks about his Nanny, and the letter to his brother, I'm mushy all over.
