Publisher's Summary

Younger star and LGBTQIA+ advocate Nico Tortorella investigates love, sex, gender, addiction, family, fame, and fluidity through their personal story and the lens of their nonbinary identity.

"Nico Tortorella embodies the twenty-first-century human." (RuPaul)

Nico Tortorella is a seeker. Raised on a steady regimen of Ram Dass and raw food, they have always been interested in the more spiritual aspects of life. That is, until the desire for fame and fortune eclipsed their journey toward enlightenment and sent them into a downward spiral of addiction and self-destructive behavior. It wasn’t until Nico dug deep and began to examine the fluidity of both their sexuality and gender identity that they became more comfortable in their own skin, got sober from alcohol, entered into an unconventional marriage with the love of their life, and fully embraced a queer lifestyle that afforded them the opportunity to explore the world outside the gender binary. It was precisely in that space between that Nico encountered the diverse community of open-minded, supportive peers they’d always dreamed of having.

Expanding on themes explored on their popular podcast, The Love Bomb, Nico shares the intimate details of their romantic partnerships, the dysfunction of their loud but loving Italian family, and the mingling of their feminine and masculine identities into one multidimensional, sexually fluid, nonbinary individual. Nico has become a leading voice of the fluidity movement by encouraging open dialogue and universal acceptance. Space Between is at once an education for listeners, a manifesto for both the labeled and label-free generations, and a personal memoir of love, identity, and acceptance.

Critic Reviews

"Space Between is honest, insightful, and poetic. This book encourages a new dialogue around humanity, sexuality, and gender identity that has been missing from the conversation. Each page inspires the reader to reflect and challenge their own biases, while gently championing self-growth and the respect of others." (Karamo Brown)

"Not only does Space Between answer many questions about what it means to live outside the gender binary, Nico Tortorella’s memoir is the ultimate inspiration for people to fully accept themselves, no matter how challenging it can be. By sharing their voyage toward realizing their own sexuality and identity, Nico empowers LGBTQ youth and grows acceptance for the LGBTQ community." (Anthony Ramos, GLAAD)

"Nico Tortorella’s Space Between captures the zeitgeist with their groundbreaking exploration of identity, authenticity, and vulnerability. It is a beautifully written account of what it means to live a life with courage." (Darren Star)

Super pretentious

This book was really hard to listen to. I found it quite wanky and preachy.

Almost shamed anyone without the exact same values.

Queer tears

Prepare yourself for some queer tears. This is a story about a queer perspective, one that is wholly unique but also oddly familiar to anyone who is lgbtqia+
Plenty of relatable moments, plenty of unimaginable ones. All of which are wonderfully told and some moments will definitely have you tearing up. Well worth the listen. Particularly for gender non conforming folx!
