look at this dumb thing i made
So here we go again~ as you can see it’s from july, so well..im not that much afraid of the scars anymore. (thx to psychologist ^^ - helped me to see some things less bigoted) But the other things are still quite relevant.. the 1st thing does not refer to my good friends I told till now, because all of them were very accepting. I thank them for this and for their support. It more refers to ppl like my mom, who knows about it, or my colleagues, to whom I’m not out yet..

…may you rest in peace…
Quote is from Tommy Avicolli, “Memoirs of a Sissy”
Moms are baffling sometimes.
I just found out that Perry Moore, the author of Hero, has passed. [Source]
This is heartbreaking to hear. Hero is actually a prized part of my book collection, I read it during my glass closet years up north, and I really appreciate what he did for gay characters, specifically gay superheros in comic books.
Much like Gail Simone did for female characters with Women in Refrigerators, Perry Moore compiled a list titled, “Who Cares About the Death of a Gay Superhero Anyway?: A History of Gays in Comic Books” which worked to raise awareness about how poorly treated gay superheroes are in comic books.
Then there was also Hero, one of the best books I’ve ever read, which presented a novel centering on a gay teen who’s struggling through the processes of coming out as well as being accepted as a superhero. This book is definitely a must-read for all LGBT comic book readers.
It’s absolutely tragic that now the world will be deprived of the stunning talent that this man possessed. Rest in peace, Perry Moore.
Feels for today.
