If there's anything that every LGBTQ person of this day and age must know, it is that the small amount of freedom we have now has been paid for by the blood, sweat, and tears of the generations before us.
Two Boys Kissing is about more than just, well, two boys kissing. It's about being able to take a step back into the shoes of those prior generations and appreciate how far we have come in terms of achieving equality. No, it's nowhere near perfect, and no, this shouldn't even be an issue in the first place, but the fact that, yes, two boys are able to kiss in public, is a wonder to those who died in hate.
This is a book that gives you appreciation for how far we have come - for the fact that we cannot, and will not, be furthermore silenced.
