“In everything we do, there’s a touch of rebellion to it. With our podcast
Bitches On Comics, we have developed a space where we focus more on talking with people who we feel have interesting things to say as opposed to creators whose comics are topping the charts, though there is crossover there. Similarly, Corporate Pride is an issue, though I work as a freelancer at Adweek and many brands have grown a lot more thoughtful with their approaches. The fact is that even when I see a brand with a wild amount of money behind them supporting queer causes, as necessary as that is, they can always walk away. We can’t walk away, it’s our lives, and we aren’t fiscally backed, and that financial restriction can be difficult, but it also frees us to be honest. It will always be vital for people like us to put out collections like this because some queer people are just a little weird. Some of us didn’t get a movie version of coming out, some of us haven’t met the love of our lives, some of us are nerds, or are poor, or have more to worry about, or have been problematic, or have loved someone who was problematic, and I think there has to be space for those less marketable versions of us as well.” – Sara Century, editor and illustration artist of Decoded Pride Issue #3
Sinead Murano-Kinney is an all around feral trans femme who sometimes makes comics, or writes about them but is generally just trying to do the best work she can for the trans community.
“I’ve been a fan of Decoded Pride since the beginning, but this is my first year actually helping with the project. I was really impressed by the editors’ dedication to uplifting marginalized voices within the LGBTQ community such as writers of color and trans writers. It allows the anthology to showcase the true diversity of the community.
I was also pleasantly surprised by how many incredible stories featuring romance and desire between women we were able to include this year. I feel like even in LGBTQ-focused projects those stories can be kind of niche.”
– Priya Saxena, editorial coordinator and copyeditor of Decoded Pride Issue #3
