A gay giant can’t hide. This charming coming-of-age and coming-to-terms with oneself story shows us what it feels like to grow up queer in a heteronormative society in the 1990s.
Filled with pop culture touchstones from Cher to Steven Tyler, from Jurassic Park to Grey’s Anatomy, this book navigates both the joy and the pain of puberty surrounded by ignorance and homophobia. How do you love yourself if you’ve learned so well to hate yourself? For all of us who’ve ever felt bizarre, damaged, or strange, we are shown that all is full of love, and that true acceptance must come from within yourself.
