LoveReading Says

LoveReading Says

This is a collection of coming out stories from anonymous speakers of all kinds, headed simply by their age and location. It brings together all sorts of speakers, in terms of varying geography, age, and identifications, but also the tone and style of the shared experiences. The effect of the collection is almost like looking at a community notice board, or anonymous forum online (but in a very beautifully produced and illustrated hardback book!) Naturally, this means that there is not one consistent voice or mood created – as the blurb says, some have moments of humour and lightness, and happy or at least hopeful endings of the relief and authenticity that comes from coming out. But I would say in general this is not an easy or even an optimistic read. Rather, it’s a humbling reminder of how many individual lives are still absolutely uprooted and upended by their queerness. If you or a loved one have experienced difficulties like ostracisation because of your sexuality, whether through the negative judgement of friends, family, colleagues, or potential partners, this collection may help you to know you are not alone.
