Writer Saeed Jones On ‘How We Fight For Our Lives’

“It was perilous to be a black gay boy in America,” Jones says of the fear and isolation he experienced growing up in Texas in the 1990s. Jones, a former culture editor and LGBTQ editor at BuzzFeed, talks about his search for identity and being “mad as hell and gay as hell.” His new memoir is ‘How We Fight for Our Lives.’
