Ryan O’Connell first made the internet LOL when he began writing for the popular website Thought Catalog. Since then, O’Connell has written for Vice, The New York Times, Medium, and Out, as well as MTV’s Awkward. His first book, I’m Special, unpacks his experiences as a gay man living with cerebral palsy. The hilarious and moving memoir solidifies O’Connell’s self-acclaimed title of “professional feeler of emotions.”
