In case you missed it, we had Tillie Walden on the blog last week to talk about her stunning upcoming graphic memoir, Spinning, and about growing up a closeted lesbian athlete, homophobia in sports, and more!

Skating is all about being homogenous… especially synchronized skating, where every girl is supposed to look exactly the same. It completely ignores the fact that every girl is an individual! So it was very hard for me to even bring up the idea within the rink that I was gay, that I was different from these other girls.

You can check out El’s interview with Tillie, and more gorgeous art from the graphic memoir, here!
