Mom, I'm Gay

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.

I would not recommend anyone to read it UNLESS they enjoy the over the top drama koreans love. The art is gorgeous, the main character is great, the story was great at the beginning. This is the kind of manhwa where everything was going great, and the characters where about to make up and then everything was going to be great and happiness. I said WAS for a reason, like a lot of romance manhwas there is that god damn frustrating drama that had NO business being there, it just ruins everything. In these kinds of manhwas there is ALWAYS a psychopath who wants to fuck with the main character's life out of spite or because of their own traumas ... and I HATE IT, I'm tired of the good guy that ends up being a psychopath at the worst time. This could have been a great manhwa but nope, they decided to fuck it up, it's really sad.

This series was really good guys, it basically shows characters going through on who they love and don’t love. The character development on this was spot on like you really blend in on the characters for what they are going through, especially how their parents are dealing with the opposite view of loving someone and how the parents got to react like this in the first place. I also liked how we got to see the sister Hana backstory of why she “can’t stand” her brother Jun so much just because he liked a fella (unfortunately a pretty bad one, such a disgusting jerk ugh 🤬) and the fact her grandmother wasn’t all that nice to her since she was not a boy. It breaks your heart that things have crumbled for both her and Jun. I know people can’t stand Hana but honestly, I would have liked to see more of her as a person on how she copes with herself through getting better. It seems luckily enough that Rin was able to find happiness unlike poor Jun like as a reader, THATS SO NOT FAIR WHYYYYYYYY?!!!

Anyways read this book lads if you want that LGBTQ drama goodness sprinkle! 👌🏻

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.)
