NYPL Best Books of the Year, 2020

Kirkus Reviews Best Books of the Year, 2020

あらすじ・解説

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

Page turner loves this book

Really enjoyed very transparent and so open I throughly enjoyed this book and related to some of the background from him being from my home town and state and hearing about his overall experience there definitely brought back some memories. I was so intrigued by the levels of vulnerability, complexity and over strength that was displayed to share such moments with the world. I am humbly grateful to be able to get a peak into his world through this novel.

Required reading

I would’ve purchased the paperback, but I had 5 Audible credits, so I decided to use them here. Moved, delighted and entertained is the best way to describe my reaction to this memoir-manifesto by George M. Johnson (a.k.a. Matt). Kudos to the author for finding his voice and courage to share his truth with us. As a cisgender woman, I learned so much. It never dawned on me how one-sided sex education is, until George shared his side of what was missing. And I know that queer boys will learn from this story and be able to have a place to turn to with their questions—and find answers. My husband heard me listening to the book and asked: Is that your gay frat brother? Me: No, he’s not a Que. But he’s still fam because 1. he’s a writer. 2. he’s black 3. he’s an HBCU alum and 4. he’s Greek. OOP-PHI! #hbcumade

I loved this story....Well done

I loved this book. I loved the transparency of the author. This book dealt with racism, prejudice and secrets. Thumbs up to the author

A must read for anyone navigating black queerness.

George’s story is his but that of so many within the large spectrum that is queerness. As a gay black man, oddly enough from north Jersey myself, I greatly identified with his story.

I would love to thank George for his bravery and transparency to share his story. I hope it can educate and be a comfort to many.

one of the most important books ever

it is hard to put into words how much I enjoyed this book... George's courage to tell their story and bring awareness to so many important issues is admirable... I identify as a gay male and am white... and I can say that I definitely related to SO many of the things George talks about when it comes to sexuality, gender expression, and overall just growing up as a "different" little boy in the 90s/early 2000s... while I can't relate to the racial aspect of the story, it educated me on many things that are unique to the queer black experience that I will use going forward to continue advocating for my POC siblings in the queer community

Black queer memoir

Extremely important story for young people, especially those who are learning more about their gender expression, queer identity, and are a part of the Black community (but good for other people to learn about George's story, too).
