5 LGBT Webcomics You Should Be Reading

One of the best things about art is how it is able to give voices to those who might not have one or who are often overlooked. Comics are one of the best example where a medium as large as it is where a lot of its readers have felt truly represented in the media. If you’re reading this and you’re like me, then there might have been a time where you picked up and read a comic book and felt an instant connection with a character because you saw a bit of yourself in them. Now that technology has gotten to the point where it is able empower a lot of artist and cartoonist out there to help give them a voice.

Today I have chosen 5 LGBT webcomics that range in degree from what they cover. Some series are flat-out comedies where see follow two people just enjoying themselves while there are some that are more serious in nature that deal more with personal hardships and trials.

    I see L and G comics here, but no B or T. Maybe that makes no difference to the folk collecting these, but it tokenises both Bi and Trans comics and creators that are out there.

  • You’re right. As far as diversity goes I have’t really come across a lot webcomics that fell into B and T as you put it. However since posting this a lot of people have offered me more suggestions as to other LGBT webcomic series to look at as well a few I might not have ever considered like Oglaf. This is definitely a topic I plan on revisiting so if you know of some webcomic series that fall into the Bi and trans catagoery please let me know.
