What started as a simple 6-page black and white zine in 2010 has grown into a 94 page full-color illustrated book.
We built it out using quotes from the 200+ surveys we collected. As we wrote and illustrated each page, we’d post it on Tumblr for critique and took that feedback to heart. We really wanted our project to represent the diverse communities it depicts.
In December of 2013, the last pages were colored and we launched an IndieGogo campaign to fund the first round of printing.
We raised enough money to print 1,000 hardcover books, and quickly sold out. As of 2019 we are in our third run of printing and the book is as needed as ever. We have translations in Spanish and German and more are on the way.
