    When Jackson's boy born through surrogacy came out to him at age 15, the successful manufacturer, currently in his 50s, was compelled to reflect on his experiences and share his wisdom on life for LGBTQ Americans over the past half-century.

    Gay Like Me is a celebration of gay identity and also parenting, and a powerful warning for his son, various other gay men as well as the world. Jackson recalls at his own trip as a gay male maturing with decades of political and cultural chaos.

    Jackson's boy stays in a relatively more liberated America, and also Jackson perfectly lays out exactly how much we've come since Stonewall-- the boosted exposure of gay individuals in culture, the legal right to wed, and also the presence of a medication to avoid HIV. But bigotry gets on the rise, sparked by a head of state that has actually declared battle on the gay community and also fanned the flames of homophobia. A freshly constituted Supreme Court with a conventional tilt is poised to reverse equality laws and established the clock back decades. Being gay is a gift, Jackson writes, yet with their gains at risk, the gay community must not be obsequious.

    As Ta-Nehisi Coates awakened us to the continued prevalence of bigotry in America in Between the World and also Me, Jackson's rallying cry in Gay Like Me is an eye-opening indictment to straight-lash in America. This book is an intimate, individual exploration of our unpredictable times as well as the majority of troubling questions as well as extensive issues regarding concerns as essential as self-respect, equality, and justice.

    Gay Like Me is a blueprint for our time that bridges the understanding gap of what it's like to be gay in America. This is a social statement of belief that will certainly stand the test of time. Angry, honored, tough, tender, it is an effective letter of love from a father to a kid that holds enduring understanding for us all.
