Hello, I’m Rogan and welcome! Today, I will be recommending graphic novels that are all queer in some way. Some have explicitly queer storylines, some have characters that just happen to be queer. There are some of these that are available to read online, which I will mention and leave links to. Like all of my recent recommendation posts, I will just say the title and author, with some additional information if I want to add it.
A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns by Archie Bongiovanni and Tristan Jimerson. This is indeed quick and easy! Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu. One of the main characters is hard of hearing! My Brother’s Husband Vol 1 & 2 by Gengoroh Tagame.
Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu. The second book was recently released, but the whole thing is currently available at checkpleasecomic.com. I *love* this, queer hockey and pies!
Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe, Stage Dreams by Melaine Gillman, Seeing Gender: An Illustrated Guide to Identity and Expression by Iris Gottlieb.
The Backstagers Vol 1 & 2 by James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh. Wonderful and cute queer theater boys. There is also a middle grade novel series that starts after this ends.
The Witch Boy seriesby Molly Ostertag. On a Sunbeam by Tillie Walden, Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks, The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang.This one, I’ve read three times now, and I just *adore* it.
Witchy by Ariel Slamet Ries. This is a currently running webcomic, but there is also a physical first volume. Queer Asian witches, what more could you ask for?
The Avant-Guards series by Carly Usdin and Noah Hayes, Taproot by Keezy Young, Ghosted in L.A. Vol 1 by Sina Grace, Siobhan Keenan, and Cathy Le.
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. There are currently three volumes, a fourth coming. All of this is available online, which is how I’ve been reading it. I haven’t actually read any physical copies. *shrugs*
Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars and The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, by Michael Dante DiMartino and multiple illustrators.
