Waterstones Says

Exuberant and unflinching, All Boys Aren’t Blue is a powerful memoir about growing up as a Black queer kid, from the LGBTQ+ activist 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'With splashes of humour and richly expressed declarations of love for their family, who've defended Johnson fiercely and often, All Boys Aren't Blue balances out the harsher experiences with warmth and the belief in a future that everyone must contribute to making better.' - The Independent

'Catalogues in candid style the author's experiences of both trauma and healing, from childhood bullying to teenage sexual abuse, to their relationship with their family and changing understanding of their masculinity and sexuality.' - The Observer

'Journalist and LGBTQ+ activist George M Johnson's memoir is a moving and brilliant exploration of Black queerness.' - Stylist
