‘incredibly valuable and inclusive’ Love is Love published today by Thread
Matthew Mackinnon & Ryan Payne’s
As TikTok and social media stars, every day Matthew and Ryan invite millions of people into their lives as a gay couple. From playing pranks to their adventures travelling, they are proud to share their love for each other (and their cute furbaby Roscoe) with the world.
For the LGBTQIA+ community, Matthew and Ryan are not only the fun-loving faces of social media - they've become the online agony uncles for a new generation, receiving countless messages from their followers looking for answers to so many questions including:
When should I come out? And how?
I'm worried my child will get bullied for being different. How can I protect them?
My family don't accept me. What should I do?
I don't know what I identify as. How can I figure it out?
Matthew and Ryan know it can be an emotional rollercoaster, and they are here to support and guide you every step of the way. Packed with bite-size entries, tips and advice on everything from coming out to working through some of the confusing feelings you might have, looking after your mental health, finding your tribe and feeling confident in your own skin, Matthew and Ryan have created the ultimate guidebook they wish they'd been given when they were discovering who they were.
They share their inspirational journeys - how they each found themselves and then each other. From Tinder and the moment they met across a crowded dancefloor with Matthew dressed as an ice lolly to the joyful life they've created together.
Love Is Love will help you navigate your journey through the rainbow and show you how to be proud to be authentically YOU!
