My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Kabi Nagata (2017 Seven Seas)
Summary: My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness is an honest and heartfelt look at one young woman’s exploration of her sexuality, mental well-being, and growing up in our modern age. Told using expressive artwork that invokes both laughter and tears, this moving and highly entertaining single-volume depicts not only the artist’s burgeoning sexuality but many other personal aspects of her life that will resonate with readers.
Notes: An astounding and brutally honest look into depression. Definitely a role for someone who is looking to challenge themselves, mentally and physically. Not a pretty story, but one that leaves every reader with sobbing and in love. Fair warning not really an LGBT story, but one of mental health.
