From day one I knew there was something different about me.
Cael sets out to find out who he is — something he wants to know more than anything. With the help of a trusted teacher, a new friend, and his favorite book, he discovers what he knew all along.
Either Way is a graphic novel that teaches teens about the history of gay rights in America while emphasizing the recurring theme that “It’s okay to be gay. Or not. Either way, it’s okay.”
Inside you’ll find three stories braided into one: a coming-of-age coming out story, a lesson on civil rights and marriage equality, and historical fiction about a gay man in the military.
And you’ll read about how Cael comes out as gay, comfortable with who he is and confident that it’s okay.
