Queer (French version for Projet 17 mai)
I’m so excited that I can finally share my new comic with you guys! Many, many thanks to Dwam for correcting my original (hilariously bad) translation and turning it into something readable in French. 
Projet 17 mai contacted me several months ago about creating a comic on the theme of homophobia, and though it is definitely something I’ve experienced (being denied service in shops, having people throw garbage, being followed by howling gangs of men, etc. just for holding my girlfriend’s hand), I actually have been more hurt and upset by the biphobia I’ve experienced from the LGBT “community” for falling in love with and marrying a cisgender man. Even bisexuals have been needlessly mean because I feel the term “queer” is a better fit for me instead of “bi” (it’s totally cool if “bisexual” is the term that works for you!! It’s just not the one for me). Basically, the Identity Police have been very hurtful to me (and others who are attracted to multiple genders), so that’s what I did my comic on.
If you can read French, go ahead and read the whole comic, or wait another couple days for me to get the English version uploaded on my site. 


 The English version is now online!
Queer (English Version)



Erika Moen is so damn sweet and so damn talented, and this comic is worth the read for anyone who identifies as anything.
I don’t get how our personal tastes in food/movies/pets/whatever else can be so completely and utterly fluid, but when that same concept is applied to our personal tastes in other human beings?  People FREAK the FUCK OUT.  Anyway, Erica says it way more eloquently than I can, so go read that and everything else she has ever written
