Female Comics Creators On Tumblr?

A while back, I asked for creators who identified as LGBTQ to announce themselves and promote their work in a massive thread right here on Tumblr. It got hundreds of responses and tons of links to some incredibly wonderful work, most of which has not yet received the exposure it deserves, quite a lot I had never seen before. So that was very joyful.  I do hope to put some of that information to use at some point (with the creators’ okay, of course!).

Today, I would like to ask all females here on Tumblr to just chime in on a similar thread. Just announce your name, what kind of comics you work on, and if you can include links, that would be wonderful. Any extra info you want to add, feel free, I would love to see it and I’m sure others would as well.  This can be for print comics, webcomics, mini-comics, even comics that are still in the proposal stage. Consider it an opportunity to raise your voice just a little…a lot of people discovered a lot of great lgbt creators in that previous thread, let’s see if we can’t do that again. Editors, publishers, and associated individuals are most welcome, also!

Also, hopefully this goes without saying, but the definition of ‘female’ here is completely as fluid as your own meaning of the word.  No judgments, how you identify to yourself is all that matters, you are more than welcome to participate, your voice is needed, too.

The Womanthology collection recently shipped, and while I don’t yet have a copy, my understanding is that it is a stunning validation of the fact that there are multitudes of talented women who are in the industry and aspiring to be in the industry.  I am hoping this thread puts another nail in the coffin of that notion that ‘women just aren’t interested in making comics.’ We know it’s not true, help us prove it once again.

Please participate, if you can. Name, a little bit about past work if it applies, and what you are working on now, and please, please include links where possible. More info is lovely but not necessary, just what you feel comfortable with.

Thank you! Spread the word!
