When a group of boys refuse to let six-year-old iO play ball, he instantly adopts a new persona, becoming a boy named Ricky, a choice his parents support and celebrate. It is the start of a profound exploration of gender and identity and the beginning of a life invented and reinvented at every step. Alternating between the harrowing and the hilarious, Darling Days is the candid, tough, and stirring memoir of a young person in search of an authentic self as his family and home life devolve into chaos.

Now an actor and artist, iO is currently finishing a project to photograph people across the LGBTQ spectrum in every state.
