Coming Out Party


A memoir of poems and art, Coming Out Party chronicles poet and author Rebecca Bendheim's queer coming of age journey -- from first crushes and toxic homo-erotic friendships, to coming out and secret flings, to finding queer community and falling in love for the first time. Coming Out Party is a fierce, funny, and deeply personal celebration of the strength it takes to break down the protective walls we've built-and embrace our truest selves.

"Poignant, painful, joyful...real. This nuanced, yet accessible, collection of poetry is a gift of considerations; a necessity of heart." —K.A. Holt, author of Redwood & Ponytail
