The choice of the narrative was inspired by a book published in 1996 called “Not Like Other Boys- Growing up gay: A mother and son look back.” It was written by mother and son, Marlene Fanta Shyer and Christopher Shyer. The entire book is captivating, deeply moving and totally brave.
Outside of the content being extremely interesting, what is fascinating is that the book offers different perspectives of their shared pasts. One chapter of the book was written in her voice and perspective and the next his voice, reflecting on the same time frame. It feels perfectly suited to capture a Bursting Through story.
