All Boys Aren't Blue by George M Johnson

All Boys Aren't Blue by George M Johnson


This powerful YA memoir-manifesto follows journalist and LGBTQ+ activist George M. Johnson as they explore their childhood, adolescence, and college years, growing up under the duality of being black and queer. From memories of getting their teeth kicked out by bullies at age five to their loving relationship with their grandmother, to their first sexual experience, the stories wrestle with triumph and tragedy and cover topics such as gender identity, toxic masculinity, brotherhood, family, inequality, consent, and Black joy.

'Powerful . . . All Boys Aren't Blue is a game changer.' - Bitch Magazine 

'All Boys Aren't Blue is a balm and testimony to young readers as allies in the fight for equality.' - Publishers Weekly
