Growing up queer in a small town in Italy, I had zero resources to help me navigate my sexuality. Italy in general is still quite conservative (LGBTQ+ marriage is still not legal, for example) and as you might imagine, it’s even less liberal in smaller towns like mine. My journey to accepting myself was long and tubulent.
I created an illustrated book about my journey in accepting my queerness try to heal my trauma and offer a resource to feel less alone for others going through something similar.
The book, called 7 Little Queer Planets, tells the story of my experience.
