Overview

Left with the choice between your happiness and your image, what would you choose?

That's a question Tristan Steele has to answer. When the eighteen year old college freshman steps on campus for the first time, he is determined to stay committed to his conservative roots. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for him, he crosses path with the outgoing and charismatic Kendrick. Kendrick is unapologetic in the way he lives his life and is confident in who he is. Inspired by his new friend, Tristan goes on a journey of self-exploration. And for the first time in Tristan's life, he finds himself looking at his unmasked yet troubling reflection.

Realizing that at his core he likes men, he frantically tries to change the path of his destiny. He knows black gay men aren't exactly the most accepted demographic. The thoughts of standing in his truth and the repercussions that would have on his relationships with his traditional family and heterosexual friends, is almost too much for him to bear. Plus, there is the fact Tristan joined a fraternity with more than a few close-minded brothers. With the looming possibility of coming eye to eye with the unveiled face of rejection, hatred, and ignorance, what life will Tristan choose to live?

About the Author

In 2014 while trying to figure some things out about life, Tavion Scott discovered he had a passion for writing. Although he previously never felt compelled to become an author, he couldn’t shake the attraction between him and the craft. So, inspired by the genius of James Baldwin, the authenticity of Maya Angelou, and the freshness of Rashid Darden, Tavion focused on composing stories that needed to be told and that would positively impact readers that ventured to ride along on his journey of creativity.

Out of his passion and inspiration came along his first novel Majoring in Me (Acceptance). While fiction, this first book of the Majoring in Me series draws from some personal experiences of Tavion. As a collegiate student at a predominately white institution, he wrestled with his own sexuality and trying to merge it with his strong Christian faith. The series also draws from some stories of others as well as his active imagination. With the first installment, Tavion hopes readers will be able to identify with the main character’s complicated journey of self-acceptance, and realize that being gay is most definitely not the end of the world.

While creating the story that unfolds in his first novel, Tavion developed the site According to T. A blog where people can go and ask advice about whatever is troubling them. Whether it’s a question about dating, or an annoying best friend, or an aggravating boyfriend, or just about issues that affect the LGBT community, he’s available to offer a distinct opinion.

Beyond his desire for writing his own projects, Tavion is captivated by the art of great story telling. Hence his love of all things Shonda Rhimes. From Grey’s Anatomy to Scandal, he’s a fan. In addition, to know Tavion is to know that he always has a song in his heart and head. Whether it’s a prolific verse from Kendrick Lamar, a catchy melody from Beyoncé, a throwback rhyme from Lauryn Hill, or a chorus from Kirk Franklin, Tavion is constantly jamming out to something.
