A much needed and influential voice, Cheves shocks while also liberating and healing... This book cements him as an important author.

Dr. Chris Donaghue, Host of Loveline and author of Rebel Love

A rare memoir... provocative and poetic. I loved every uncomfortable minute... it’s a must-read.

Diane Anderson-Minshall, CEO and Editorial Director, Pride Media and author of Queerly Beloved: A Love Story Across Genders and four novels.

Savor every word of this literary bacchanal. I predict it will catapult to the top of Queer book offerings.

Race Bannon, Author and Community Leader

Cheves tells his story of early gay life as it should be told: terrifying, daring, angry, and so very fragile.

Christopher Harrity, The Advocate

This book is a poignant rebellion against the constant pathologizing of all things Queer.
