Relishing their newfound feelings for each other, Korra and Asami leave the Spirit World . . . but find nothing in Republic City but political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict!
So, no punches pulled there. ^_^
LGBTQ Comics/Manga Fundraisers
Please help me help the Queers & Comics Conference to bring in LGBTQ comics creators to this amazing and important event. Contribute to the Q&C Conference Travel Fund. I’m asking you to please give this effort a few bucks. There are 2 dozen or so queer artists who need help to get to this event. You’ll have a chance to receive excellent rewards from artists (including a super spiffy Korra x Asami stained glass print poster!) As always, I’m not asking you to do something I won’t, I got myself the Manko Riot t-shirt.^_^ And if you cannot contribute, please share the link widely. Tell as many groups, and lists and pages as you can.
I’ve also donated again to Rica Takashima’s Aliens in New York Project in which she puts on interactive events with her peek-a-boo boards, showcasing the full range of diversity in New York City.
All of the articles, podcasts and people I am following now on resistance issues all agree that you cannot be pulled in a million directions. For sanity’s sake, you have to find something to care about. It dawned on me that as much as I support women’s rights, civil rights and LGBTQ rights and will not stop trying to defend them everywhere I can…the thing I care about is queer comics. I care about our freedom of expression to an obsessive point and I value people on the margins voices above those who speak from power. And I hope, that if you also value queer voices, you’ll help support queer creators, including us here at Okazu. ^_^
