“I went downstairs to Dad’s encyclopedia and looked up HOMOSEXUALITY, but that didn’t tell me much about any of the things I felt. What struck me most, though, was that, in the whole long article, the word “love” wasn’t used even once. That made me mad; it was as if whoever wrote the article didn’t know that gay people actually love each other. The encyclopedia writers ought to talk to me, I thought as I went back to bed; I could tell them something about love.”
I’m not really good at book reviews so I opted to make it into “Book Thoughts” because I usually just say what I think about a book in a concise and short manner. But before going on about Annie On My Mind, I just want to tell a little background story:
Since discovering and embracing my sexuality, I decided to consume more LGBT stuff, something that will give me knowledge about being LGBT and to remind me and show me that what I am is not abnormal and to see more and good representation, a proof that we don’t have to hide anymore, that we are and can be free. So, I started on LGBT+ literature.
