LGBTQ+ issues vlogger Riyadh Khalaf is in the process of writing a book.
Riyadh, who made the announcement on Twitter, says he hopes the book will be “a life bible for young gay boys”. It will include anecdotes from his life as well as practical advice for young gay men and their families. Riyadh says the book is something he “badly needed at 16”.
