In this candid and curious essay collection, Jonathan takes a thoughtful, in-depth look at timely topics through the lens of his own personal experienceâ€”instances that have required him to learn, grow, and back handspring layout to a better understanding of the world around him. He dives deeply and widelyâ€”from a poignant reflection on grief and embracing body neutrality to an examination of the HIV safety net and white privilegeâ€”to share the ways in which he has learned to embrace change. These stories speak to doing the work to challenge internalized beliefs, finding compassion and confidence, and learning more about what makes us all so messy and gorgeous.
Balancing the dark and the light, the serious and the signature humor that is Jonathan Van Ness, these essays will encourage readers to examine their individual assumptions and expand their horizons. Ultimately, it is about giving ourselves the permission to be the flawed and fabulous humans we are, and loving our stories.
