Binge by Tyler Oakley
I always have a hard time writing personal memoir’s with anything other than 5-stars, anyone else have the same issue? :’) That being said, I really did love this memoir. I got the audiobook version which was narrated by the author, which definitely added quite a bit to my overall reading experience.
I’ve watched Tyler Oakley on YouTube for a number of years and I’ve always appreciated his overall positivity, his willingness to be vulnerable and his activism to bring better support for the LGBTQ+ community. This book was a microscopic view of his upbringing and the various personal experiences (both good & not so good) that led him to who he is today.
I think it’s so important for stories like this to be shared, especially in today’s social and political climate. I appreciate Tyler for trailblazing the way for other young LGBTQ+ community members to, hopefully, continue to share their stories and to be open with who they are knowing that they most certainly have a place in this world. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have read this book and I thank Tyler for putting his story out into the world 🙂 ❤
