Out and In and Out Again

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The Straight Road to Kylie by Nico Medina was one of the first books I read about an openly gay character. In it, the main character starts off out of the closet and then goes back in to get something he wants. It’s definitely not “literary” fiction by any means, but when you’re starved for representation, you’re not always so concerned with the quality. All the books that I read when I was first accepting my sexuality still hold a place in my heart even if rereading them now would prove them to be problematic in some way or another. Think of what fictional character’s your protagonist relates to. Write a scene that explores what your protagonist has in common with this relatable character.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
