Starting today, Indestructible: Growing Up Queer, Cuban, and Punk in Miami is now available wherever your favorite books are sold!
And, you know… on the website still too…
In her Miami high school, Cristy Road fought valiantly to figure out anddefend her queer gender identity, Cuban cultural roots, and punk-rock nature, and just be her own damn self. Her illustrated memoir of those times is particularly ideal for today’s social climate. Through daring writing and illustrations Cristy reminds us of the strength and ability of punk youth—for addressing things like rape, homophobia, and misogyny. This is no exception; giving a voice to every frustrated fifteen year old girl under fire from her peers for being queer or butch or punk.
Is it any good?
We think so! And other people do, too; here’s some of the praise it’s gotten:
“Literally drawn from the intersection of Road’s Cuban identity, her queerness, punk rock, …this portrait in black and white is electric.” — BUST Magazine
“Refreshingly candid, Indestructible is a worthwhile read for teenagers who are struggling with their journey in to adulthood, particularly gay teens, and for adults who have forgotten how difficult the teenage years are.” — Mass Movement
“Road’s novel is a testimony of survival a powerful reminder of how we must create (and re-create) our identities whether the mainstream is with us or not.”— Feminist Review
“[Road’s] artwork is a party on the page, or a riot, or a revolution. With language and imagery she is creating a mural of radical joy.” – Michelle Tea
