Things Are Hard! Here’s Some Queer Coloring Pages!

Artist’s Note (5/30/20): Hi pals! FYI I made this post before things really started going down in Minneapolis (where I live) and totally forgot about it until now! I don’t at all want folks to think I created these pages as a way of avoiding the hard realities of what’s going down in MPLS as the city fights for Black lives and justice for George Floyd. I believe in paying attention when things get rough, white people don’t get a respite as folks continue to fight, in a pandemic no less. Anyways, I hope you all print these out and enjoy them whenever it’s good for you, but I wanted to clarify my intention was not to distract from the realities of Minneapolis and the rest of the country right now. Thank You.

No comic from me this week! Things are rough, all around. Instead of my regular Grease Bats, I’m sharing some coloring pages from a book that was rejected last month after an editor was “slightly offended” by the images.

Enjoy homos! And tag me if you end up coloring any of them! :)

  1. I’m going to save these for when I get access to a printer (or get a fancy tablet, which may actually come first !)

    I’m looking forward to colouring those insertable funtoys !
