Growing up is never easy, no matter who you are or where you come from. Finding one’s true self, one’s true path, and one’s true potential is a struggle; for Jimmy, a young black man growing up in Detroit, his path is one he’s not equipped to travel. As he gets older, he finds he can no longer deny what his heart is telling him—something that is tearing his heart and his world apart at the seams. He’s afraid of what it truly means to be black, Christian, and gay. Who he is goes against everything his family, his community, and his faith could ever accept. He’s afraid of how people will react to him. He has an inkling of how this news will change how those in his life think of him. Even so, along this lonely path, he also finds the love of his life. But even this great love can’t shield him from hatred and intolerance. His family is ashamed of him. Those in his neighborhood shun him. His fellow churchgoers label him a sinner. As he faces a new wall of bigotry and prejudice, he digs deep to find that he is stronger than he knew. This new strength shows him life from a different perspective. Now, he is ready to accept the very person he was once denied. Jimmy learns that it is the highs and the lows of his life that define who he is, and he’s grateful for every one of those moments.
