NYC's handsome Insta-studs the Zakar Twins made up one of my most popular posts of 2017.
Now, they've sexy authors as well ...
Their new memoir, Pray the Gay Away, stars the boys' mother, who refers to them as her two biggest regrets and tries to pray the gay away.
“Mom knows.” A simple text that would change two twin brothers' lives forever. Coming out is hard. The struggle is ongoing, a daily part of life whether to a new friend, a co-worker, or most importantly yourself. Pray the Gay Away chronicles Michael and Zach as they face awkward sexual encounters, drug-fueled escapades, coming out to each other, and their biggest foe - Mom, a woman who not only gave birth to what she calls one regret - but two. The memoir hilariously and poignantly explores what it’s like growing up as gay, Iraqi twins in modern America. Pray the Gay Away was inspired the night Mom snuck into their bedroom and force fed them “holy grapes,” determined to “de-gay” them. The Zakar Twins are new voices speaking out against generations, particularly within the Iraqi culture, who look down on being gay. This book is not only for the LBGTQ community, but for young adults, looking to achieve normalcy.
So the next time you're drooling over an Instagram account, don't take it for granted that the guy or guys you're staring at have it easy just because they've got 100,000s of followers.
