Very Inspiring!

I learned a lot from this book about LGBT, which I think is very important in today's world. I also had many laughs along the way, as the author did a fantastic job at writing, and bringing lots of wit into all the quotes. If you're looking for a good audiobook on LGBT with a hint of humour look no further than this book!

So refreshing and love the narrator’s voice!

This audiobook was a refreshing and witty way to gain some insight into the LGBTQ community. It was funny yet informative through the wonderful quotes that were shared. I loved that it was a quick listen, and it honestly made me laugh. It spreads love and promotes respect for the community. I personally really liked the narrator’s voice and could listen to him for hours!

Amazing work, I want another book like this

Wow, what a fantastic way to promote love, education, and ways to interact with people that don't understand that everyone deserves the same respect and care. These quotes are a refreshing way to deal with homophobic people and a relaxing way to teach more people about the diversity in our country

Great listen for LGBTQ perspectives/insight!

Gay Wit and Wisdom is a great quick listen that sparks conversation! It also provides perspective from those in the community as well as allies to the community. Listen to it while on a walk or in the car with friends or family to engage in a discussion about what we can do to elevate this community. Some quotes were more thought-provoking while other quote were intended to be humorous. I loved the inclusion of the wine quote from Schitt's Creek 😆 - one of my favorites from the show!

Quick, funny and thoughtful presentation

Great work. Funny stuff, heartfelt stuff, "thinky" stuff. I'll recommend for anyone looking for a nice pick-me-up or a little something different from the usual "self-help inspirational quotes" drivel that seems to dominate the audible space. Highly enjoyable and highly recommended. Gay wit and wisdom delivers both. A+

Informative Book !

An educational and informative book for everyone who does not know the LGBT community. This book has opened my eyes to many aspects and information decisively and funnily; I really enjoyed it.

Empowering and touching

I love this cute book of queer quotes!
It's a great mixture of quotes by everyday people, celebs, and inspiring activists. Some are funny, some are empowering, and some of them really touch your heart.
A great book whenever you need a dose of positivity or empowerment :)
Love wins

Refreshing & Inspiring

Difference and uniqueness is a particular beauty that should unite us. I thought this audiobook was a simple and lovely way to encourage openness of mind and acceptance. I loved the combination of deep, meaningful quotes and the touch of humour that made me feel grounded and complete. Simply refreshing.

Come Out.

This is a very entertaining audiobook! It’s great to know that you are not alone in this world. Yes, there are nice people, but there’s also the hostile. Not all are open minded. Theses quotes inspire and let us know that there is a whole community out there with full support.

Great Learning

This book give a lot of insights into a community, I knew nothing about before now.

It's loaded with humour and thought provoking words.

The knowledge drawn from "Gay Wit and Wisdom" will help people within and outside the community to co-exist and draw strength, love and compassion.

Thanks for Bringing this forward

Good to hear how support is offered. It’s good to have this opportunity to hear new ideas, old ideas and eternal truths about people about how lovable people are. I’m sure the author has a lot more to say, so looking forward to your next book.
