From Standing Room Only, 2:37 pm on 5 July 2020

After telling her coming-out story numerous times to high schoolers Lil O'Brien decided to write the full and often painful story in a memoir. The Auckland freelance copywriter felt the time was right to share the intense and confusing teenage years she experienced trying to figure out her sexuality, and face the serious consequences when her parents found out before she had a chance to tell them. Lil reads from Not That I'd Kiss a Girl, from the part focused on her university years. Not that I'd Kiss a Girl by Lil O'Brien is published by Allen & Unwin
