Dates is an anthology of queer historical fiction. Over 30 creators have come together to create almost 30 comics, illustrations, and short prose stories about queer people living life throughout time and across the world. From Joseon Dynasty Korea to 1950s Russia, Dates is 170+ pages of LGBTQ+ characters finding affirmation and acceptance. We’re launching this Kickstarter to raise money to pay our artists and print Dates as a beautiful perfect-bound paperback book, complete with color comic covers and illustrations.
Dates is edited by Zora Gilbert and Cat Parra. The book is full of the work of amazing artists and writers: Monster Anthology’s DarkTarou, Robyn Hood’s Pat Shand and Roberta Ingranata, Millionfish, Effie Lee, Erica Chan, and so many more!
We can’t wait to share Dates with the world, and we hope you’re just as excited! You can show your support by heading over to the Kickstarter and preordering a book. While you’re there, you can also check out our full list of collaborators and see some previews of the book! Even if you can’t donate, a reblog or share means the world to us. Thank you so much!
