So I've read these two LGBT+ books the past few weeks. I gotta say, they're good. I'll leave a little rating/intro to the books below. I hope this helps for people trying to find good LGBTQ+ reading! Happy reading! . Beautiful Music For Ugly Children: a FTM trans guy, Gabe, runs a radio show one night a week. The book is partially about his transition and shows the discrimination he faces after he is outed. I read it first freshman year and it really opened my eyes to the trans community. I reread it this past week and I fell in love with it💜 . . Boy Meets Boy: I've only started reading this one, but it's high-key gay. Big time. The main character meets a boy name Noah, and he instantly has a crush on him. That's all I got so far. But it's big time gay. So far there's only 1 proclaimed straight person, which some might consider a negative trait as overwhelming or unrealistic, but it's still good so far. I'm not liking it as much as BMFUG, but it's still good. . . . #lgb #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqa #lgbtq + #gay #lesbian #pansexual #bisexual #asexual #aromantic #bisexual #beautifulmusicforuglychirldren #boymeetsboy #lgbtqbooks #goodreads #transgender #ftm #mtf #transition #comingofage

I am so pleased that in addition to being able to purchase “The Starchild of Atarashara” via Amazon, Banyen Books of 3608 4th Avenue W Vancouver is carrying it! I'm also in gratitude to the other five books stores of the lower mainland: The White Dwarf (Vancouver), Black Bond Books (Ladner), The Reading Room (Tsawwassen), Whitby's (White Rock), Natural Health and Wellness (Tsawwassen), AND Saskatoon's McNally Robinson for bringing the books into their stores at such a busy time of year. This list will be added onto in the new year! Please take a moment to check out the website of The Starchild of Atarashara, where the store locations and their addresses are listed. https://www.thestarchildofatarashara.com/ #fantasy #fiction #comingofage #books #empowerment
“The beginning and end echoed each other. My childhood was gone. Finally I felt free from the burden of my family. I no longer needed to find them. I was my own home now. And at last, I could breathe fully, taking fresh air into my own lungs.” . By Xiaolu Guo From . My hometown is next to Xiaolu’s hometown. I was born 15 years after she was. Reading her memoir is just liking reliving part of my own childhood: resentment to the rigidity of an old society, hatred towards a propaganda-filled environment, helplessness from a depressing childhood, a rebellious nature to defy all, and the eagerness for a self-made identity in the west. Guo Xiaolu writes in the most unforgiving fashion, tears down every possible facade of a society, and ruthlessly reveals its nakedness. My heart is constantly wrenched and stomach in an ever tighter knot as I merge myself into every up and down of her life journey. And at the end, I see complete beauty and unyielding hope in a very not complete but hurt person, who has become an inspirational Chinese-born author rocking the English publishing world. . Nothing seems more appropriate to honor this incredible reading experience than making my hometown dessert. . #ninecontinents #china #zhejiangprovince #xiaoluguo #reading #comingofage #booklover #bookgram #bookstagram #bookworm #chinesewomen #home #identity #selfmadeidentity

💥💥💥💥 awesome antibullying film 💠💥💠💥 . @Regran_ed from @movietvblog - Dumplin’ (2018) is a coming of age comedy directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) based on a novel by Julie Murphy. Starring : Jennifer Aniston, Danielle Macdonald, Oddeya Rush, Maddie Baillio, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Luke Benward and Kathy Najimy. The story is about an overweight girl named Willowdean who is nicknamed Dumplin’ by her beauty queen mother, Rosie. She decides to enter a beauty pageant to honor her deceased aunt Lucy and to protest the lack of inclusion in pageants while battling self-esteem issues. This an uplifting, feel good, coming of age story and above it’s flaws and predictable storyline carries a big message. As we see many teenagers bullied about their looks that result into long term depressions and unfulfillment, I personally think this a nice step toward helping them. Jennifer Aniston brings her wits and her painful experience from her mother to this role and the amazing songs of Dolly Parton gets the movie going. As a movie it’s not groundbreaking or a must-see but for anyone interested im seeing a movie to feel good about their body with an uplifting feel, it will be a delight. I have learned over the years to like movies with good messages and not outright dismiss them because they are not “good enough” and current structure of society needs more positive body image movies for the younger generation. . . . . . . #Dumplin #dumplinthemovie #JenniferAniston #JenniferAnistonfan #TeamAniston #BexTaylorKlaus #DanielleMacdonald #LukeBenward #Dovecameron #Gingerminj #BodyImage #positivebodyimage #Bodypositive #bodyimagemovement #beautypageant #Pageantmom #Netflixmovies #NetflixAndChill #NetflixOriginal #NetflixandChill #Pageant #BlurayCollection #Moviereviews #healthybodyimage #Dollyparton #ComingofAge #JenAniston #Aniston #Faniston #shreveportCinema .fuggettaboutit

I just finished reading/listening to #ManchildInThePromisedLand by #ClaudeBrown This is a part of my growing collection of #autobiographies written by #Blackmen The legacy and impact of this sub-genre is reflected in the introduction of this book's later edition written by #NathanMcCall who published his own firsthand, Black man's American narrative almost 3 decades later after Manchild was first published in 1965. Claude Brown tells the story of his growing up as a Black boy and eventually man in #Harlem during the 1940s and 50s. It gives a realistic portrayal and snapshot of the first generation of Black people being raised in the Northern ghettos of the time, the working class families, the #blackchurch #hustlers #drugdealers #junkies #drugabuse #prostitution #numbersrunners #sex #crime #violence #speakerscorner #nationofislam #coptics Although this book chronicles life during the 40s and 50s, it's a #timelessclassic and still relevant by revealing how much hasn't changed for Black people in urban areas, a #mustread #booksforblackboys #booksforblackmen #comingofage #maturity #bookstagram #audiobooks

I believe there’s a time in every young mans life when he needs a real suit. It was time for Young Vinci and I may have gotten a little 👀 💧. He enthusiastically approved of his Body Armor. #DadLife #ComingofAge #LifeLessons
A young gay teen takes a novel approach to coming out to his classmates. #nowwatching #teen #romance #comingofage #comedy #drama
This is a great read for anyone dealing with coming out or reflecting back on their coming out experience. It's set in 1975, but the theme is universal.

I’ve always had strong (and in retrospect, accurate) gut feelings about people, whether good or bad. Prior to the narc abuse, I did not fully respect my intuition. I treated being perceptive as a sort of joke or embarrassment. I tended to give people the benefit of the doubt, & always focus on the best in people. This is actually a self-destructive trait, because even serial killers probably have a few pleasant qualities — so focusing on the sliver of goodness a person has nestled in between all their evil and depravity is setting yourself up to be abused, exploited, or worse. . . . Post-narc abuse, for the first time ever, I am darn ruthless when it comes to honouring my intuition and distancing myself from absolutely any person or situation that feels jarring & seems sketchy. So, in effect, surviving #narcissisticabuse has been a sort of #ComingOfAge experience for me. I finally lost my innocence & naivety & gained a deep respect for boundaries & following one’s intuition. . . . How about you? Do you have a different relationship with your intuition now that you’ve experienced #NarcAbuse ? . . . #intuition #gutinstinct #innerwisdom #empaths #HSP #highlysensitiveperson #narcissisticabuserecovery #recovery #healingjourney #selfhealers #lifeafternarc #narcopathawareness #innerknowledge #trustyourgut #TheGiftOfFear #DontSecondGuess #intuitiveempath

“Krivo mi bilo kad sam ga video kako gubi volju. U isti mah je jedan policajac krenuo da trči prema drveću. Svi smo ga gledali kao da je poludeo ali smo onda videli da je na livadi bila neka crna mrlja tamo prema desnom izlazu gde staza vodi za Kumodraž. Samo je stao iznad nje i krenuo da viče da dođemo. Inspektor je trčao iz sve snage i prvi došao do tamo. Onda smo i mi ostali stigli. U snegu je bila kapa sa ušivenim A.И. Inspektor je otrčao do šume pa se odmah vratio. Svi smo gledali kad je rekao da su gore tragovi od kola. Jedva je disao ali je rekao da je Aleksa namerno bacio kapu i da je ovaj zamenio automobil.” .

Watched the #comingofage #LGBT play "Beautiful Thing" (basis for the movie) at Slate Theater. Delighted that it was entirely in #cockney accent! Not too thrilled that it was mostly dialogue & no action.

5/5. You’d expect to find some sort of gap – something missing in how Burnham presents Kayla’s life in terms of the emotional connection it creates with you. Not because it’s Bo Burnham - but because it’s practically impossible to do so when one is tapping into the perception of a specific demographic. But that’s the thing. This isn’t just about that. It isn’t just about how well someone can relate to a character. It isn’t inhuman or unconvincing in its portrayal of Kayla Day’s emotional struggles as a shy eighth grader, since it doesn’t throw every cliché at you in an attempt to illicit a response. No, this is real. The sociocultural elements of the film, particularly Kayla’s use of vlogging, are tools in the presentation of Kayla Day’s struggles in her quest for a personal connection. Her use of vlogging underscores her sense of worth (or lack of it) – it being her perception of her own validity in the social structure of middle school. While it appears to be that she’s sincere in how she conveys her thoughts in her videos, she never seems to realize that she’s defying practically every single piece of advice she draws up.  Burnham looks into this paradox without compromising Kayla’s characterization – despite her meek and, as many have already termed it, ‘cringeworthy’ efforts at attaining social status, you don’t think she’s generally pathetic or oblivious. She’s oblivious only to the oblivion that her own innocence puts her in. Burnham takes us through this innocence by giving us many subjective editing and cinematography, putting us in her place in some scenes while, in others, drawing us out to get a glimpse at her futile attempts in a sympathetic perspective – we know that she doesn’t know any better. That’s not to say that she isn’t mature; it’s just that she can’t see the line between what’s real about herself and what she wishes were real about herself. #EighthGrade #BoBurnham #Comedy #Drama #ComingofAge #Gucci #Film #Review #Art #Independent #2018
"I don't understand young people's life, and I will not interfere. But you shouldn't have lied to me." "Dad, we keep many things from you, just because we don't want you to worry." The generational gap we all can relate to, but from the parent's point of view.
