Johnson is one of the 2022 TIME200 Next, TIME‘s annual list of rising stars, as well as one of Out‘s 100 Most Influential LGBTQ People. They use their inspiring life story to teach individuals, corporations and policymakers about LGBTQIA+ activism and social justice in healthcare. Johnson’s New York Times bestselling memoir All Boys Aren’t Blue, a powerful recounting of their adolescence growing up as a young Black queer boy in New Jersey, was optioned for television by Gabrielle Union and Sony TV and called “an exuberant, unapologetic memoir infused with a deep but cleareyed love for its subjects” by the New York Times.
