What is a queer cartoonist?
A queer cartoonist is a lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender and/or queer creator of comics, including artists, writers, letterers, colorists, editors, etc.
Why a queer cartoonists database?
I created this database so that queer cartoonists can find each other. It's also great for finding comics to read and teach, and finding cartoonists to follow/befriend, promote, hire, and learn from.
Why are so many fields N/A?
The N/A fields have either not yet been researched or submitted. If you have information I can fill in the blanks with, please submit the info via this online form.
You've got my name/ethnicity/gender/etc. wrong!
I'm so sorry, mistakes sometimes happen! Please
don't be offended, but please do fill out this form so I can make corrections.
How can I submit additional info to this database?
To submit yourself as a queer creator, or to add information to an existing entry, please fill out this form. The database gets updated about once a week, depending on personal circumstances.
How can I correct erroneous items in the database?
If you find misspellings or other erroneous information, please fill out this form. If there is a creator listed who shouldn't be in this database, please let me know by email.
Who are you and what are you getting out of this?
My name is MariNaomi and this site is a labor of love, in conjunction with the Cartoonists of Color database.
You can read more about the database's origins in an interview I did with Vice.
What can I do to help?
Spread the word! If you know of a queer comic book creator that isn't listed here,
please encourage them to add themselves to the database by filling out this form. For other questions or suggestions, feel free to send me an email.
