For this ‘My Story’ commission, Eric has produced a digital graphic novel utilising his own original prose and poetry.
Take a look at Eric's novella here.
I am incredibly passionate about LGBTQ+ issues and proud of my LGBTQ+ identity. I’m especially keen to share my story as I felt a definite sense of isolation in my LGBTQ+ identity as a child and want to create the kind of positive representation that might make other young people in Plymouth feel embraced by their community. My story is a difficult one but ultimately one with a very positive message, coming from a place of difficulty and going through many struggles but ultimately ending with the happiness, confidence and self-love that I initially thought it would be impossible for me to achieve.
