God. I just finished reading the last chapter and. I became so attached to this manga without even realizing and that just goes to show how a well written story can become relatable . The topic itself of homosexuality isn't one debated very often, so it's refreshing to read a story that takes on the theme so well. It describes both the ups and downs of being "different" in cultures not as accepting as other may be. I really loved it and the art was very characteristic, in a good way. This is my first review ever so I don't know what else to describe it as other than amazing. Others might not have the same experience as me, but considering the amount of wrong and misleading mangas about sexuality out there, my hope for a good one that portrayed the lgbt community with rightness and realistically almost died. That was until I found Mom, I'm gay.
Probably one of them best LGTBQ+ themed manhwa, it's an amazing book. Talks about the issues queer people have while growing up and day to day issues they face (whether it's homophobia or relationship issues). Aside from the negatives this story moved me alot, I've cried so much. This book made me feel more better about my romantic attraction, since I don't use label to describe myself, other than to describe my sexual attraction (which is asexual), as well as making me feel better this book also made me feel more powerful. I really loved Jun's mother and how she have put so much effort into protecting her own family and educating herself, she is a very comforting character and really hope everyone would be like her. I don't understand the fact that only 13 people have read this book. It's such a good book, I LOVE IT.
As a queer myself this touched me. I read this on a limb and it made me understand other's feelings better. I feel myself relate to Jun quite a lot, having little confidence and little trust in people is traits I share with him. The story itself progressed nicely. Hana still sorting her feelings out and finding the true resolve she longs for. Is the best part of the progression of the story. I truly find myself so attached to Rin and her story. That feeling of wanting to be expressive and not hide any part of you. The real part of the story is truly jun's mother. She was quickly flustered by hana outing her brother and took sometime to truly process everything, but seeing it all flow was quite nice to see. The story bringing all subplot into one is quite a sight to see unfold. Though the whole (SPOILER!) carr chase scene felt unnecessary. I was fine with the resolve of the crazy bf going to jail, but the things leading up just felt it went overboard. I really liked the dad appearing last minute at the car chase. Overall tho it was quite nice. I would recommend as a short read maybe on a car ride or quick trip. Also recommend for those who want to understand queer feelings. (not the best representation for queer feelings, but really gets the jist of it and helps with where to start with understanding queer feelings.)
