Don’t let that serious face fool you.
John Paul Brammer’s one funny guy.
His advice column, ¡Hola Papi!, got its start on Grindr’s digital magazine, INTO, back in 2017. He pitched it as “Queer Latinx Dear Abby Huffing Poppers” and the rest is history.
Today, his column’s been adapted into a hilarious and sometimes poignant memoir of the same name.
In ¡Hola Papi!, he recalls his life growing up biracial and closeted in middle America. In between personal anecdotes, he offers his opinionated take on some of the things we each struggle with most in life, from accepting ourselves for who we authentically are to whether it’s possible to be too gay. (Never!)
It’s the perfect beach read, so make sure take this Papi on vacation with you.
You won’t even have to buy him a plane ticket.
