Summary
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

Good story. I really appreciated that the author narrated it. Got it because when people say you shouldn't read a book, I gotta read it! Well written. Conservatives need to suck it up. The book was carefully and thoughtfully written. Yes, there was some descriptions of sex, but it was not gratuitous or salacious; it was more clinical. But it was about HIS life and how events affected HIM. I read way more explicit material in high school - and that book was written in the 1700s! By today's standards, I'd call this PG-13. I see no problem with high school kids reading this book.
