In it, Riyadh offers advice to teens who admit they’ve been feeling ‘different’ than other kids. The author was quoted as saying he wants to realize young people can see that being gay is actually a “gift” and hopes this book will serve as a handy guide for helping them through a difficult part of their life.



The book intends to recognize the anxiety that comes with knowing you’re gay before changing that train of thinking early. In addition, the book emphasizes how to pursue a healthy gay relationship: recognize who you are but also recognize that consent is important and if you’re online, don’t let strangers make you do anything you find uncomfortable. As a result, some contents of the book deal openly with sexual situations and can be graphic for some, but never gratuitously so since the point is always to educate.

Lighthearted and easily accessible, the book is a fun, hilarious read filled with stories of gay men all around the world. Anyone who needs some help along the way will, upon reading this book, will not only is being gay a-okay but, more importantly, they are not alone.
