Ah, Lucy Sutcliffe, how we love you. Her book ‘Girl Hearts Girl’ made our hearts smile. It’s a memoir that takes Lucy from never quite wanting the fairy-tale of Prince Charming to realising she was gay at the age of 14, through three years of self-denial to finally coming out to friends and family, to meeting her American girlfriend Kaelyn.
There are SO MANY things to love about Lucy’s tour. Here are a few of ’em.
Lucy was there. Duh.
YouTube. Author. Inspiration. We love her SO MUCH and it’s always amazing when a US-based author makes it over to the UK.
Lucy had some great advice on coming out
L came out to parents by email, J to his dad via letter – both would rec it; great way to make sure you say exactly what you want to say.
