I hated her so much, and so purely, with such satisfaction. I couldn’t look away.”
Being bi is Gen’s favorite thing about herself. It’s as freeing for her as it’s become for me.

Artists’ Alley is full of comics and drawings and zines and buttons and stickers showing gay and bi and queer and pan and trans and gnc characters of all types being happy and being themselves.
