About the Book

A Boy Like Me is the first anthology from openly gender fluid and LGBT+-identified artist Reki* who is also a recording artist based in Los Angeles, California. The collection of poetry and prose is primarily a firsthand narrative of what it means to be feminine within the community when concerning dating and romance, society at large, and sometimes within family and platonic ties and circles. Other themes include heartbreak, day-to-day testimonies that reveal to the reader how alike many of us are, and his mother’s untimely death. A Boy Like Me is a piece of literature geared toward liberation of the femmes within the LGBT+ community that are ceaselessly tempted to silence by outside forces and, many times, by our own.

About the Author

Reki* is a 27-year-old recording artist currently residing in Los Angeles, CA who began writing at the age of 13. He is openly gender variant, barring feminine most days, and is open about his sexuality and gender expression. He is viewed somewhat as a “radical” enigma within the community, as he is racially ambiguous (a product of mixed racial heritage), highly opinionated and educated among many controversial topics, and a vocal trailblazer for reclaiming space for feminine boys WITHIN the realm of the LGBT+ movement who are often dismissed and discarded by their peers. Reki* is poised and determined to leave hand and foot prints for voices that are marginalized so that the future generations to come can have a better quality of life than what is known in 2017. -Download the debut mixtape for FREE: http://bit.ly/rekimixtape -Like him on Facespace: https://www.facebook.com/TheyCallMeReki -Listen to Reki*’s angelic voice on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/beau-bonito -Stalk him on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_aboylikeme_ -Witness Reki* on theTube of YOU: https://www.youtube.com/JustCallMeReki -Creep on his Twitter: https://twitter.com/_aboylikeme_ -Help Reki* grow on Reverbnation: https://www.reverbnation.com/theycallmereki -For bookings & all other inquiries, please email: rekibookings@gmail.com
