Can’t catch one of Mx Justin Vivian Bond’s celebrated cabaret performances? Well, now you'd better FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELT.
Hilton Als, theater critic for The New Yorker, calls Mx Justin Vivian Bond "The greatest cabaret artist of (v's) generation," and you can hear why. The range this story and Bond's reading of it display, from whisper sweet to tough as nails, is enthralling.
Bond’s memoir concerns a childhood in the Sixties and Seventies, knowing she wasn’t like the other boys. There are all sorts of details that reflect the era such as putting on his mother's "Frosted Watermelon" lipstick before school—not to mention the quack psychiatrist that told him as a child that his "gay-ness" was a just a passing faze.
There’s innocence lost and found, confusion, sweetness and more. It’s serious, deep, and deeply entertaining.

Had to read/listen to for class and I must say it was great. Funny, lighthearted, sad, a good listen. Spending 2.5 hours listening is in my opinion a lot better than spending 2.5 weeks having to read it.
