Dustin Lance Black, Academy Award-winning screenwriter and LGBTQ activist, narrates his family’s heartwarming and poignant journey growing up across intersections of faith, poverty, and sexuality in the southern U.S. and California. Black’s conversational storytelling illuminates his cherished mother Anne’s irrepressible spirit and tenacity in the face of adversity and boundless possibility. Mother and son’s powerful connection, forged through a lifetime of shared experiences and love, forms the heart of Black’s memoir. Anne’s childhood in polio treatment centers, perseverance through two abusive marriages and the raising of three sons, and pursuit of professional fulfillment are recalled in a voice that evokes deep emotions. Their relationship evolves through his film school years, coming out, and fight for marriage equality. Manifest throughout is Black’s passion for storytelling, family, and LGBTQ rights. J.R.T.
