A Quick & Easy Guide to Coming Out

Here’s the official description of A Quick & Easy Guide to Coming Out from the publisher:

Whether you’re queer, trans, questioning, or anything in between, coming out to the folks in your life can be nerve-racking and stressful. Luckily, writer Kristin Russo and cartoonist Ravi Teixeira are here to guide you through the process, no matter where in your journey you are. From finding supportive resources, navigating awkward conversations, and embracing queer joy and community, this guide explores the twists and turns of coming out as every shade of LGBTQ+, helping you walk the path of sharing the truest you. 

Designed to be an evergreen primer for anyone looking for insight or guidance to decide when and how they would like to “come out,” Russo and Teixeira have crafted a first-of-its-kind comic of trauma-informed advice– covering what it means to “come out,” how it’s viewed by society, and common misconceptions. The duo also tackles topics such as abuse, anti-LGBTQIA+ violence, and representation. A QUICK & EASY GUIDE TO COMING OUT includes a resource list; along with authors’ personal thoughts and experiences.

This light-hearted but informational graphic novel aspires to make one of the most daunting moments in a queer person’s life even a little bit more approachable, Russo and Teixeira deftly navigate difficult conversations, all while still enthusiastic and supportive. The next title in the critically acclaimed series makes its debut September 24th; look out for A QUICK & EASY GUIDE TO COMING OUT!
