CHECK PLEASE! GN Vol 1 HOCKEY

(W/A/CA) Ngozi Ukazu

The hilarious and heartbreaking confessions of a figure skater turned
collegiate hockey player who’s terrified of checking – and is desperately in love with
the captain of his hockey team!
Eric Bittle is a former Georgia junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and amateur pâtissier. But as accomplished as he is, nothing could prepare him for
his freshman year of playing hockey at the prestigious Samwell University in Samwell, Massachusetts. It’s nothing like co-ed club hockey back in the South! For one? There’s checking. Second, there is Jack, his very attractive but moody captain.

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up

  • Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
  • Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
  • Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
    acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
  • You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
  • Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
  • Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
  • Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
