Love in All Forms is an up-coming comics anthology that will feature stories about children, aged 5-12, who are on the spectrum of Queer sexualities and genders. This book’s intent is to give a strong representation of queerness in children’s literature, encourage open dialogue among families concerning sexuality and gender, and humanize the queer experience to those who are not queer. They are looking for original, previously unpublished full-colour stories 1-12 pages in length about the lives of Queer children, including nonfiction and fiction alike. The contributed material can be from any genre—adventure, fantasy, drama, romance, and many more.
