Diane Obomsawin on tour for On Loving Women

Join Drawn and Quarterly and Diane Obomsawin for the release of On Loving Women, an all-new collection of stories about coming out, first love, and sexual identity. In this work, Obomsawin shares friends' and lovers' personal accounts of first realizing they're gay or first finding love with another woman. Each story is a master class in reaching the emotional truth of a situation with the simplest means possible. Her stripped-down pages use the bare minimum of linework to expressively reveal heartbreak, joy, irritation, and fear.

On Loving Women focuses primarily on adolescence: crushes on high school teachers, awkwardness on first dates, but also addresses much deeper-seated difficulties of being out: fears of rejection and of not being who others want one to be. Within these pages, Obomsawin has forged a poignant, powerful narrative that speaks to the difficulties of coming out and the joys of being loved.
