About-

As does the soul of a gay, celibate Christian, the book Birds, Bees, and Me makes its home at the junction of spirituality and sexuality. From adolescence on, navigating the confusion of these topics with the ambiguity of a queer sort of Christianity is both awkward and heart-wrenchingly lonely. Birds, Bees, and Me is here to provide snapshots throughout the journey of one Christian boy who found himself exclusively attracted to other men. The narrative moves forward and backward through the speaker’s life in order to paint a picture of the shattered pieces of himself that must be picked up throughout the years. Suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, and self-hatred all ensue cyclically with each new discovery and paradigm shift as the author begins to chase after intimacy, identity, and sexuality in ways that his faith had previously restricted. But with each step there is also an invigorated readiness which braces for the cold, misunderstanding world that he and his sexuality must learn to flourish in.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In this all-too-familiar story, Collin Brice honestly shares the journey of a young boy who ventures to discover his identity, sexuality, and faith. Brice so beautifully captures this story that at times it seems as if he is writing the biography of many of us. Whether or not you are queer and a person of faith, your story is in these pages.”

—Mason Mennenga, podcaster, writer, aspiring theologian



“Collin Brice’s book is a timely one. A personal story of struggle, spirituality, identity, and loneliness that offers a refreshing and convicting look inside the life of a young man’s journey in sexuality and spirituality. This book is sure to encourage those who are same-sex attracted, and (I hope) will convict and encourage the church to have more empathy to our struggling brothers and sisters!”

—John Wylie, digital evangelist



“Storytelling is one of the greatest reminders of our shared humanity. As I read this book, I couldn’t help but think of the human spirit’s longing to be seen, known, and loved. Collin shares his story with unhinged vulnerability, inviting us to see the world through the eyes of another. That is such a rare gift.”

—Andrew Voigt, writer and mental health advocate
