If you’ve been around these parts for a minute or two, you know we’re a big fan of Lisa Franklin‘s web comic, My Two Lesbian Ants. She even published a super special — like The Baby-Sitter’s Club used to do — with us this year, along with a beloved essay about birthdays and a personal comic about long distance relationships. I’ve written a bit over the years about my complicated relationship with the holidays, which is as fraught this year as ever (it’s hard out here for hope right now!). But! One thing that has brought my a whole lot of joy this season is My Two Lesbian Ants’ advent calendar. It’s all the things that make the comic great — gayness, whimsy, wit, a vast knowledge of the queer pop culture canon, affable clowning on the zeitgeist, running jokes, and a gentle dose of self-deprecation — wrapped up in holigay cheer. (It’s running a few days behind, which has worked itself into the comic in the most relatable way.)
Behold! Great tidings of comfort and joy!
You can buy your very own My Two Lesbian Ants book to hold in your hands, and a second volume is on the way!
