Flipping the Script

Bouncing Back From Life's Rock Bottom Moments (Inspirational LGBT Book by a Social Influencer and Celebrity TV Host)

By AJ Gibson

#1 New Release in LGBT Studies and Biographies & Memoirs ─ Stories to Help You Persevere

Live Through the Hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network – and then fires you for being “all icing and no cake.”  Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should’ve used your time on the show do more for Christ.  Then, because there’s always another “then,” you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your tenth-floor bathroom window…literally.  Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back and share his struggles because, well…not today Satan!  He knows what it’s like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help book Flipping the Script, he doesn’t sugar coat the truth.  After all, this isn’t Hollywood, errr…anymore.

Know You’re Not Alone: AJ’s journey from a closeted gay boy from Ohio to that guy people kinda, sorta recognize from TV and Hollywood seems glossy, but the truth is anything but.  In Flipping the Script, AJ shows how his life has been a series of personal roadblocks and rock bottom moments.  Every time he thinks he’s in the clear, he finds a new way to crash and burn.  Let’s just say insecurity was once a pretty close friend of his, so he knows what you feel like whenever you find yourself scrolling social media comparing yourself to others.  Luckily, he’s a pretty smart guy and moderately witty, always finding his way out of life’s rock bottom moments – and you can too!

Turn Bad Situations Around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail.  Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head.  He also knows that we all have problems and he’s here to help.  The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness and inspire you to turn your own rock bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!

Feel Empowered: AJ’s “Hollywood” situation may be unique, but his struggles are definitely relatable.  After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find a person who has achieved success without problems – especially in the LGBTQ community.  As a proud gay man working in the entertainment capital of the world, AJ’s personal and professional stories will leave you feeling empowered and a little less defeated.  Flipping the Script will give you the strength to overcome your own personal roadblocks.  In his book, AJ shares tips and tricks in the form of “Script Rewrites” at the end of each chapter that will help you persevere and find your true purpose. 

Flipping the Script will rip your heart out, make you want to fight somebody, and leave you feeling like you can solve world hunger – all in a single chapter.  You will:

  • feel deeply connected, knowing you’re not alone in your struggles
  • have simple, real world tools to help you bounce back and live the life you were created to live
  • see yourself as the wonderful, creative, capable human being that you have always been – but forgot somewhere along the way
