Praise For…


"Khalaf is gay and he uses his own personal anecdotes as tools to teach, but he’s not pious or pushy. Instead, there’s a whole lot of care and camaraderie in these pages, and the words “you are not alone” are not just written, they leap from each page."
- Terri Schlichenmeyer, Washington Blade

"This book is part self-help, part memoir, part inspirational book for anyone who is coming to terms with what it means to be queer."
- Tirzah Price, BookRiot

"Serious but fun"
- Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Washington Blade
