Snując rozważania wokół doświadczeń, na jakie endemiczna i powszechna homofobia narażała go przez cały okres dzieciństwa na południu Stanów Zjednoczonych, ta osobista opowieść autorki/-a rozpoczyna się w momencie, gdy odnalazł/-a pierwszego sojusznika w najmniej oczekiwanym miejscu. Jego najlepszej przyjaciółce jako pierwszej w całej klasie zaczęły rosnąć piersi i wydawało się, że świat się dla niej zawalił, podobnie jak cały świat odwrócił od niego z powodu jego zniewieściałości. Ta opowieść w pierwszej osobie jest pierwszym rozdziałem książki traktującej o płci kulturowej, rasie i klasie na południu Stanów Zjednoczonych, w połączeniu z krytyczną refleksją osoby z mniejszości etnicznej, która przemierzyła świat i zamieszka po jego drugiej stronie.

Reflecting on lessons learned from the endemic and tacit homophobia throughout his childhood in the American south, Diepiriye's personal narrative begins with realizing his first ally in a most unlikely corner. His best friend became the first in their class to grow breasts and the world seemed to collapse in on her much the same way the world abandoned him because of his effeminacy. Told in first person, this is the first chapter in a book that regards gender, race and class in the American south with critical the hindsight of a native who has now traversed the world, and currently resides on the other side.
