Panel Mania: ‘I’m A Wild Seed’

January 27, 2021 | 1 book mentioned

Sharon Lee De La Cruz’s I’m a Wild Seed is a playfully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived graphic memoir that explores her personal experiences accepting life as an intersectional Puerto-Rican/Dominican queer Afro-Latina.

In this engaging account, De La Cruz offers a brisk history the LGBTQ community and the struggle for queer rights, touching on the Stone Wall riots, the nature of toxic masculinity and the history of violent suppression of queer people as she guides the reader through a combination of personal (and often funny) anecdotes that methodically examine the nature of race, gender and sexuality. In this ten-page excerpt De La Cruz begins to tell the story of “how I came into my queerness as an adult.”

I’m a Wild Seed by Sharon Lee De La Cruz will be published in February by Street Noise Books.
