The Times I Knew I Was Gay

by Eleanor Crewes - £14.99  Virago Press Ltd (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780349013213 | ISBN 10: 0349013217

A tender and funny graphic memoir about identity, love and Willow from Buffy.
 
Ellie always knew she was different. Contrary and creative, she wore black, obsessed over Willow in Buffy. and somehow never really liked boys.
 
As she grew, so did her fears and a deep sense of unbelonging. From her first communion to her first girlfriend via a swathe of self-denial, awkward encounters and everyday courage, Ellie's journey is told through tender and funny illustrations - a self-portrait sketched out from the heart.
 
The Times I Knew I Was Gay reminds us that sexuality is not often determined by falling in love with others, but by coming to terms with oneself; that people must come out not just once but again and again.
 
Full of vitality and love, it will ring true for anyone who took time to discover who they truly are.
