Comicosity is pleased to report that the Kickstarter campaign for Being True: An LGBTQ Comics Anthology is now LIVE! The Boston Comics Roundtable is a group (local to Boston) of LGBTQ comic lovers that have come together to release an uplifting celebration of LGBTQ life and identity.
The stories blend fiction and nonfiction, from fantasy and superhero comics to real and touching stories from the artists’ lives. While many local creators were tapped for the project, the anthology also includes contributors from as far as Brazil and Poland. It’s all about supporting LGBTQ comics writers, artists, and creators and their stories of heart, love, and happy endings.
The anthology will be printed in black and white with a color cover and be approximately 85 pages. Renie Jesanis of the BCR created and directed the anthology. The editorial board also includes Stephanie Glass and Kyri Lorenz of the BCR. The board would like to give a special thanks to Donna Martinez.
Individual copies will be available at $15 through the Kickstarter, as well as retailer packages of 3 and 5 copies. If you miss the Kickstarter, the book will be available in person at FlameCon, Boston Comic Con, and MICE, as well as at select Boston-area comic shops.
