For Pride month this year, I really wanted to shine the light on some of the amazing, amazing queer comics that I have come across and which deserve so much more love! Often when there is talk of queer comics there is a main name which always crops up and usually dominates the discussion; Lumberjanes (and/or Nimona). Whilst I do love both of these comics, there are a lot of fantastic queer comics out there which are doing beautiful things with art, narrative, and diverse representation. Many of these are even free to read online, with creators earning money through tips rather than being paid on a regular basis. So, I want to share with you all some of my favourite queer comics as well as some which I can’t wait to read!
