Translated from the Norwegian.

Forty-something Louise is married to Peter, with whom she has four children.

They live in a big house, and on paper everything looks fantastic.

But Louise has a secret that she barely dares to admit to herself: a burning desire for women.

When I Came Out is the story of a woman who has met society's expectations throughout her life but finally realizes that she has not been true to herself.

From first-time creator Anne Mette Kaerulf Lorentzen, this bold and elaborate piece of autobiographical work addresses personal anxieties about coming out later in life and documents her jump from a safe, well-established, heteronormative, middle-class life to living openly as a lesbian.

With beautiful drawings using anthropomorphic characters, Anne Mette Kaerulf Lorentzen tells her coming out story with charming sensitivity and a loving humour.
