Please share any diverse comics/literature you have here. I'm looking to read (and hopefully subscribe) to series that feature diverse characters, especially people of colour (BIPOC). Also happy to read any stories with:
- Characters identifying as LGBTQIA+
- Persons with disabilities
- Any other underrepresented or marginalized groups
- Comics/novels by creators living outside North America (I will still read things written in NA, just want to expand my horizons to creators in other countries)
There used to be a great creators of colour section on the front page briefly while the BLM protests were happening last summer, but Tapas has removed it. The whole conversation about diversity and uplifting underrepresented voices last year has pretty much disappeared from Tapas, which is sad because I found so many interesting stories.
To me, diversity is not a fad or something one does once a month or occasionally. Community building and uplifting diverse voices is an everyday action if we genuinely want a more welcoming, inclusive, equitable, and just world. It also takes a lot of courage, learning, and an open heart. Looking forward to checking your stuff out! Thanks for reading my post.
(P.S.: Please keep your comments civil and be respectful to other Tapas users. Racist, homo/transphobic, or any other ignorant comments aimed at minorities will not be tolerated)
Edit: I will do my best to read every single post.
Edit 2 March 4: I am still reading posts and I don't care how long it's going to take, I'm reading ALL of them! IDC! IDC! Also: y'all are awesome, thank you for your contributions.
Edit 3, March 4: I'm still reading! I might not respond to all comments here because I'm leaving likes/comments/subscribes on your page instead. Also realizing that in less than 24 hours, we've created our own diversity "front page" in this thread. To date, there are 48 contributions.
Edit 4, March 26: Work got busy recently but I'm back and the thread is still open! Will be reading more.
