Description

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.

Critiques

"In an industry that thrives on artifice, Nico Tortorella’s candid soul-searching is precious and invigorating. As with the best truth-telling, it gives language to a thirst we had forgotten, while also quenching it. This is a book about addiction, familial trauma, and gender - yes - but more so it is about living. Living is an art form that Nico does well, and this book is an argument for making meaning from the messiness that surrounds us rather than simply muting it. Nico’s distinct and relatable prose tangos us past binaries, toward an intimacy beyond language." (Alok Vaid-Menon)

"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)

A beautiful journey

I’ve followed Nico for a few years now on social media. He has always had a way of captivating me through his passions and creativity. Being a passenger on his ride, entranced by every word, is an awe inspiring ride. Through his own journey of self exploration and learning to navigate where he fits on the spectrum of the world we live in, he compels us to look inward ourselves. From his colorful family, to his experiences with lovers and people that have impacted his journey, we can all find something to relate to in this book. It was a ride I will never regret taking.

Words cannot express, but I'll try.

Nico Tortorella's story serves as a bridge between the world we live in now and the possibilities of tomorrow if we are true to ourselves, patient with others, and embrace the driving force of it all, Love. We can unteach ourselves the roles and expectations society has drilled into us and re-emerged as the humble beings we were intended to be. All of it is love. All of it is you. We all embody part of the space between.
