The Simple Feeling and Beyond: Kirk and Spock’s Place in Queer History
The modern understanding of queerness and fandom, in all its myriad forms and complexities, owes the lion’s share of thanks to James T. Kirk and Spock.

Contributor Vrai Kaiser breaks down just how important it was that Gene Roddenberry okayed Kirk and Spock’s queerness.

Hey guys this is Caden, I just wanted to say we have reached my goal for my Top Surgery which I will be undergoing August 17! flavntstreetwear has been partnered with me for the last 5 months and they have raised $1,600 for my surgery! I’m so blessed to be giving this opportunity to work with Chris and Courtney, this company has done so much for me and I will forever be so grateful to them. Without Flavnt I wouldn’t be able to get my surgery this year and I will continue to show my love and support for Flavnt and all they stand for. They are changing one life at a time and I think that is truly amazing. I wanted to thank all my supporters and followers for standing behind me throughout my journey, since starting a YouTube channel and tumblr I have revived nothing but love and support from all of you. I’m still in awe honestly, never would have imagined to have this many people care, and support me. I wouldn’t be in this position if it wasn’t for everyone. I have so much gratitude for you guys and for Flavnt Streetwear to help me align my body in a way I have always pictured it to be. This is a life changing surgery for me and every time I will look at my chest I will remember everyone who helped me get there. I love you all from the bottom of my heart and can’t thank you enough. I will continue to give back to the community who gave me so much 💙

Thank you, Caden

Shout out to queer people who:

• have known their orientation their whole life
• only just recently figured out their orientation
• are still figuring out their orientation
• thought they knew their orientation but now have to go back and rethink it because of learning new information or feeling something new
• struggle with their orientation
• struggle with others telling them their orientation isn’t real or isn’t natural
• struggle with stereotyping and other ignorant comments made by others

I love you all and I feel your pain. You’re always welcome here.

Queer Space is Here!

This project has been brewing for a long while! In January, a long Twitter conversation happened between several MCAD students where we came to the conclusion that A) the world needed more queer content by queer creators and B) MCAD needed a fresh new comics anthology.

The anthology features queer work by queer creators, making the comics they’ve wanted to see in the world. Ranging from goofy sci-fi to high school comedy to introspective reflection, there’s a story in here for everyone.

This anthology features contributions by myself, Alex BergmanRemy Ripple, Nathan Fredette,  Lauren Faulhaber, and Puck Saint.

Queer Space is available for download as a PDF on Gumroad. Donations are appreciated, but not required.
