Knife Edge Girl
Kikka FurutsujiFour Stories
1. Knife Edge Girl
Void Notes: This was actually my first full GL manga (anthology, w/e). I had read one shots here and there but not a full volume. Now I'm hooked lol.
Shiroi Heya no Futari
Ryouko YamagishiResine, a rich girl whose parents died in an accident, leaves her selfish relatives in order to attend the boarding school that her mother went to. Once there, she meets her roommate Simone, a blunt, rude troublemaker and the kind of girl Resine would rather do without knowing. However, she finds herself strangely drawn to Simone nonetheless, and the turns their relationship takes could be dangerous for them both.
Void Notes: The FIRST GL manga and a heart breaking drama from a member of the Year 24 Group. From the 70s so keep that in mind.

Void Notes: I don't have proper words other than "i'm gay" and "this is one of the best i've read in a while"
My Lesbian Experiance With Lonliness
Nagata KabiThis is a compilation of a manga essay originally published on pixiv. It tells a personal story of the author, aspiring mangaka who had never had sex, or even allowed herself to think about sex outside of reading BL manga.
The author is a 28-year-old millennial who lives at home, a college dropout who's led a lonesome, unfulfilling life. She was on a path to self-destruction until she realized that she needed to live for herself and fill the voids in her heart.
One of those voids happens to be the loving embrace by a woman, i.e. her mother, so on the whim, she schedules a hotel date with a female sex worker. (NSFW)
Void Notes: An auto biography about a woman and her struggles with depression, loneliness, parental issues, and being gay. Heartbreaking and not GL in the traditional sense. I consider it a masterpiece.
