Gay Giant

by Gabriel Ebensperger Author

In this heartwarming story of growing up gay in the 90s, author Gabriel Ebensperger shares his fears of being discovered and reveals the inner life of a queer child in an extremely heteronormative culture. From singing on the playground instead of playing soccer to playing with Barbies instead of Legos, Ebensperger shows how his preferences as a kid were disdained by society and how the acceptance he was seeking ultimately had to come from himself. A coming-of-age story that will be relatable to anyone who ever hated themselves because society told them to, or felt out of place in a world full of prejudice and homophobia.
