This a great little book to own and display on the coffee table. It's a reminder to me that we of the African-American LGBT community are malnourished when it comes to seeing our stories, our faces prominently and consistently displayed.

At one time in my life, I followed the author's blog religiously. It was by chance that I stumbled across it again and learned that he had wrote a book about black gay relationships. I immediately came to Amazon on put it on my wishlist, and not too soon I ordered my copy. It arrived, and when I cracked it open the first thing I noticed was how incredibly short the profiles on each couple were. In fact, as previously mentioned I was a long time reader of the author's blog, and noticed that it pretty much had the same profiles the author wrote previously on his blog. I did however read the entire book in one setting - easily accomplished since the profiles were about a page or a page and a half - but didn't feel any sense of greatness or hope or whatever I had when I originally found out about the book.

Minor spelling and some formatting errors aside, I do think that the idea behind and the effort in producing this book were more than worthwhile. I would have liked it more if the profiles went a little bit more in depth and spoke more about how these relationships endured. Perhaps there will be a follow-up to this where that can happen. It is something to look at the pictures of black gay men though and see the love radiate from them. I just wish I had gotten at least 1,000 for every picture that was in the book!

So, all-in-all it's an okay book. It definitely could have been more substantive, but if you just want to know that sustaining a relationship with a black gay male can be done then go ahead and pick it up. I would look to other books for important relationship advice though.

I found this book to be "Simply Beautiful." I enjoyed each and every story. A must read! This book was everything that I thought it would be. I even read it through twice. Thank you Darian Aaron!

I know first hand how wonderful and great the idea of this book is. It's shows what our Black Gay community is missing today. Healthy Black Gay couples. There are no books about us , but thanks to Darian Aaron we have one. After reading this book, it should teach you to "Live Out Loud" and embrace the relationship you are in. To love on another , to respect, and to grow together. I highly recommend you order your copy today. And tell your friends. Let's cross our fingers and hope Darian writes a part two...
