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!
