Sophie Labelle’s Assigned Male is a rarely seen story about young LGBTQ kids, long before the age where sex is relevant, discovering themselves and convincing the world around them that they exist.
It is smart, complicated, intersectionally diverse and just fantastic.
Stephie & Ciel are exactly the kind of heroes a lot of folks need and deserve; Today.
It’s also really great to see characters grow, quite naturally, from “Not getting it” to “Mostly gets it, tries their best, and knows how to apologise”. In particular Stephie’s dad learning to respect and defend his daughter is awesomely endearing to see.
