Auntie Social is the biggest, baddest drag queen in Atlanta—she knows what she wants and she gets it. She’s tough, merciless, and top dog. That’s what Paul Stewart, reporter for the Journal, had heard, and all he expects when he’s assigned to interview the legend.. But nobody really knows the person behind the make-up.What if…what if the person behind the sarcasm and music was more than just a man in a dress? What happened in his life that, thirty years later, made him a successful CEO, a philanthropist, and a legend in the gay community? Thirty years and almost a million dollars raised for people living with HIV/AIDs, yet still no one knows the real story.Until one night, one man breaks through the shell, and Matthew Trammell—Auntie Social—opens the door he closed many years ago and lets his secrets spill out.Pain is like rain, it covers your skin and soaks in bone-deep, but it eventually recedes and allows fresh things to grow.

2,5 stars.Without any atmosphere of the 80s. Melodramatic and unrealistic.After I have read some really great books about the AIDS topic, I am very picky in regard to it. Sorry, I didn't like it. Though the writing was Okay.

5.0 Book Review: Let's Hear It For The Boy by T.A. Webb
This is the kind of story that should be read by anyone who came of age during the AIDS crisis in the mid-80s, anyone who reads LGBT fiction, and anyone, period. Matthew Trammel is Auntie Social, a drag queen living in Atlanta, and a HIV/AIDS activist - something that's dear to him for reasons you...

Paul Stewart from the Journal interviews Matthew Trammell, drag queen, kn...
