August Book of the Month- Boys Run the Riot, Volume 1

Boys Run the Riot

Ryo is transgender, but is not out at home or in school. He still is forced to wear the girl's school uniform and hide his crushes on girls. The only thing that allows him to express himself is fashion- he buys men's clothing he can wear on his days off. When new kid, Jin joins his class, Ryo thinks he looks like just another bully. But when they discover their shared interest in fashion, Jin begs Ryo to start a clothing line with him! Ryo might finally have found a way to let his true voice be heard, but there are many bumps in the road to launching a successful clothing line.
A new own voices manga by a trans creator that explores LGTBQIA+ issues in Japan.
