I will admit that when I saw this was available I got really excited! My brother and I love watching Queer Eye together and when I saw Tam on the cover I could not say no! For those of you that don’t know it, June is Pride month and this audiobook allowed us to hear 7 different stories from members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I am always a little apprehensive about collections of short stories, but this was different. These were true stories that the each storyteller went through. They were funny, sweet, and some where inspiring.
It felt like I was listening to a stand up comedy routine. I mean…these stories were recorded in front of an audience and there were moments where I laughed along with them. you have the pleasure of hearing from:
- Janine Brito
- D.J. “Shangela” Pierce
- Emma Willmann
- Gigi Gorgeous
- Percy Rustomji
- Nikki Levy
- Alexandra Billings
Tam and Nikki served as the hosts of this collection but only Nikki shared her story. This audiobook is less than 2 hours long but it is worth the listen. I laughed a lot and while some of these stories were funny I really just enjoyed hearing about how they embraced being who they are and that is just amazing. While all the stories were amazing the last one was the one that touched me the most.
So if you are looking for an audiobook that will make you laugh and smile this is it. And before I go let me just say, no matter who you are, or what brought you here, just know that you are amazing. Never ever allow anyone to dull your sparkle.
