i love how elements as serious as cultural appropriation to the little things like menstruation and masturbation were depicted. Juliet Takes a Breath" Author Gabby Rivera On Inspiration, Queer Representation and Racism In Publishing". While this novel does prevail over others as so much of the novel is driven by Juliet’s journey to learning about feminism, it’s plotless besides that. All those aspects, while brief, due to the nature of this format, were so well done and surely very eye-opening for many people.

Not only by the girls who want to be with her, but by the people who care and believe in her and her talent. Everything about this book is absolutely fantastic, from its insightful skewering of second wave feminism to its critical analysis on the LGBTQIAP+’s gatekeeping to life in Portland, Oregon, home of hippies and hypocrites.Juliet sets off to discover herself, and both what she finds and what she learns are different and better than what she expected. One of the things this book highlights is the various gatekeeping that runs rampant in many sectors of the LGBTQIAP+ community. It was also hard for me to believe that Juliet’s only resource on feminist literature was Raging Flower - even in Harlowe’s book she says to read books and resources from a wide range of people, so I couldn't believe that Juliet hadn’t taken that advice to heart. There is also a great f/f sex scene with a big emphasis on consent and masturbation is also explored in this graphcic novel.

My favourite visualisation of characters were Juliet (of course), Kira, Maxine and Harlowe’s hairy legs. Every time Juliet saw a fabulous queer lady and lost the ability to speak or spit out coherent sentences I was on another planet of joy. While Juliet experiences instances of a marginalized community excluding other marginalized groups through gatekeeping (primarily with Phen, who was projecting many of his own insecurities), she also experiences a marginalized community welcoming a not-as-marginalized community into their doors.While I adored the conversation on queerness and on being QBIPOC, and how different that experience is from a white queer person's experience, I found the plot rather meandering and boring. The number of queer women around at all times in this novel was impossible to ignore and it made my heart sing.
