I'm a Wild Seed by Sharon Lee De La Cruz
“The queer community is lucky to have Sharon on our side, using her skills and passions to create a better world for all of us.”—Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
A collection of lively autobiographical comics guiding the reader through an understanding of queerness and what it means to one woman of color.
In this delightfully compelling full-color graphic memoir, the author shares her process of undoing the effects of a patriarchal, colonial society on her self-image, her sexuality, and her concept of freedom. Reflecting on the ways in which oppression was the cause for her late bloom into queerness, we are invited to discover people and things in the author's life that helped shape and inform her LGBTQ identity. And we come to an understanding of her holistic definition of queerness.
