Yuri Manga

Volume 3 of Golondrina (ゴロンドリーナ), Est Em’s story of a young lesbian training to become a matador hit the streets last month in Japan.

LGBTQ Comics

Remember back when Kate Kane, as Batwoman, asked Maggie to marry her? Well, she never got a response then…and stuff happened. I honestly thought DC forgot about it. Apparently not, because Kate, out of costume, has asked again – and this time she gets an answer. Bleeding Cool has the scoop.

I can’t remember if I shared this with you or not – Leia Weathington has a whole Tumblr post of teasers for the second volume of  her adventure comic starring a pleasantly lesbian princess, The Legend of Bold Riley.

Via YNN Correspondent Erin S., Midwestern, Genderqueer, and Proud: Exploring Gender in a Middle-America Comics Project looks to create tools to discuss gender through comics.

    !!! I’m in Japan now, and I think I saw posters with those Nanoha figurines at Animate and was thinking, “Where can I get those???” My Japanese reading skills are only so-so, so I thought it was for an upcoming gacha machine or something. Guess I will have to go visit my neighborhood Circle K and investigate further. :D
