This image is from my series Carnival of Nightmares, on Tapastic.
In this image I'm also celebrating another event: we're going to have a Pride Parade in Padova, my town. After 16 years.
That is why the setting of this scene is my city, Padova (Italy).
ISSUE 1 OF OUR HEARTS STILL BEAT IS OUT NOW!
Our Hearts Still Beat is a zine organized to benefit the Orlando queer community. Full of illustrations, comics, short stories, and poetry, it is a celebration of queer life and love. The zine is meant to be an opportunity to heal, both for those who have graciously donated their work and for those who read it. Our Hearts Still Beat includes the work of:
Puré • Stephanie Brown • Erica Chan • Francesca & Michela Da Sacco • Shaula Evans & Viviane Tybusch • Jillian A. F. • Allie Hotchkiss • Ingram • Francesco Savino & Roberta Ingranata • Pat Shand & Manuel Preitano • Gwen Young • Melissa Zanella & Francesca Zambon
The zine is $2, or pay what you want. Every cent made from sales of Our Hearts Still Beat will go to The Center, the largest LGBT+ resource center in Orlando (www.thecenterorlando.org).
Interested? Pick up the zine! And please–spread the word!
Note: We’ll also be accepting new submissions for issue 2 until July 15th (final art deadline July 19th)! See the link for more information:www.marginspublishing.com/tagged/our-hearts-still-beat
