Now that all the main stages are set for this chapter, let's cut back to Maria for now. She, Blair, and Isaac arrive at the local college for Isaac's aforementioned performance and happen to find Ky who's been absent from the story for faaaaar too long (as I know many of you will agree). Heather's around here somewhere too, but we'll get to her later.

As a random side note: I had a little existential crisis when I drew this page because for a moment I thought it featured the first kiss between two guys thus far. And I'm like, "how did I get over a thousand pages into my super gay comic without that!?" It's not though. Ky has kissed both Gavin and Drew while in boy mode in the past, and that certainly counts. It's funny though. Downside of writing a story this long is that even I as the author start to forget about things.

I may need to do a full story reread in the near future. ^^;

Except it's not.

Yeah, true. I wonder what Blair meant by this college allowing more freedom of expression. Are there other colleges in the area that are just as toxic and oppressive as St. Hallvard?

Well NY is a very 50/50 state on red or blue. I'm more yellow or green myself.

I would guess it's more him being precise, as he likely is only familiar with this college.
Some Ed 29th Oct 2018, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
Depending on what exactly you mean by area, there are absolutely other colleges and universities in the area who are not as accepting. If you define area to be globally scoped, there are far more than any of us want to consider. It just takes knowledge of one of those, anywhere, for the comment to make sense, without it being some kind of paranoid CYA statement.

Of course, there are also a lot of people like me who make paranoid CYA statements all the time, just to be sure that we are not misunderstood, because we're used to being misunderstood. Especially by that "one example means it applies everywhere" group. Who, based on one example member of that group I've met, probably have no idea who they are. ;)

I meant in the immediate area. I just wanted to know because it sounds like there are more schools besides St. Hallvard around that are dangerous for people like the characters here.

Well technically 2 females kissing can also classify as a gay kiss.
Kyle 26th Oct 2018, 3:43 PM edit delete reply
Your right it is. It's just been so long since we've seen one that I forgot. What'd you mean by yellow and green?
Kyle 26th Oct 2018, 5:27 PM edit delete reply
I also guessed before that Issac was DJing something at the college, but now that I see what the show is, I have a feeling he's not Djing the show, he's IN the show. I hope that's the case.

Yellow is the color of Libertarian, Green is Green Party.

Well... first CISGENDER gay kiss, I suppose...

Except you know Chanelle and Maria...
Chrissy 1st Apr 2020, 7:57 PM edit delete reply
I'm not completely certain both characters involved are cisgender... See the last bubble in what I'd call panel 5..

Ky kissed Gavin at New Years

I was caught really off guard by Ky for a second because for some reason I thought they were Teddie from Persona 4.
Rei-chan 26th Oct 2018, 7:13 PM edit delete reply
Big mood. Also, is it just me or are a ton of the persona fandom lgbt? It seems that we all flocked to it.

OMG I love Ky outfit, they look so cute
Catlife333 27th Oct 2018, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
It's been a while since we've seen kylie
Ladyoftheroundtable 27th Oct 2018, 6:07 PM edit delete reply
That has got to be the girliest I have seen ky.

Well they are a girl to be fair (sometimes).
Ladyoftheroundtable 30th Oct 2018, 3:00 PM edit delete reply
Calling them a girl kind of over simplifies it. Today the feel feminine, but that doesn't really make them a girl.
Guest 31st Oct 2018, 8:40 AM edit delete reply
Nope, as long as they say they're a girl, they are. Of course, at the moment, we are unaware wether they really are in "girl mode", but if they are, she's a chick.

A drag show?

On a pro-Trans comic?

Well...that's gonna be controversial no matter how it plays out considering its a very Marmite (You either love it or you hate it) issue in every Trans group I have ever been in.
Cassie 28th Oct 2018, 12:44 AM edit delete reply
I'm trans, and I LOVE drag. It has been an important stepping stone for many trans people before they fully come out. Although I don't do drag, I know lots of trans people who like to do drag as their birth sex. They've told me that they find the fact that it takes them effort to appear to others as the gender they were assigned at birth is very gender affirming.

Yes but your opinion is FAR from being in the majority, its a topic that splits the trans community 50/50.

Even with the amount drag has helped some trans women in the past come to understand their gender it is still hard to forget just how much misinformation and transphobia that has been fostered by drag and the assumptions it has put into the minds of cis people which is made worse by the fact that even in the early years drag artists were almost exclusively cis white males.

The correlations with black-face are also undeniable and it has been said by some black trans people that drag has been more destructive to the trans community then black-face ever was to the black community an idea that I myself am unsure of but I have to listen to and agree with people when they tell me that something is or isn't a tool of their oppression.

I may have the right to express my views as a trans person but when it comes to things affecting people of colour and how similar things exist within the LGBT community I can't just disregard their opinion even if im on the fence.

I myself am on the fence but the amount of transmisogyny from certain well known drag artists has certainly pushed me over to one side even though I recognise that, that doesn't represent everyone that does drag.

It's a comic book, people gotta chill out. This is in a fictional universe with fictional people. It doesn't have to be an exact parallel to reality.
Fox 1st Nov 2018, 1:13 AM edit delete reply
DrakeZephyr, exactly. It's okay for there to be controversial things in comics, it doesn't mean anything bad about the author, the comic, or the characters. This universe is not the same as ours in every way and drag is important to some people trans or otherwise, so it's okay, for it to be here.

Basically, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I think it's problematic to politicize the elements of the comic in the comments section.
Ruby Ruth 28th Oct 2018, 10:23 PM edit delete reply
I'm trans and I like drag shows too. Every one I've attended since beginning my transition, the performers have come up to me after the show to hear my story because they all instantly recognize I'm for real and not in drag myself.
Anastasia 30th Oct 2018, 9:16 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I’m really not thrilled about drag being in the comic. I hate drag so much. It has been so damaging to me.
Cassie 28th Oct 2018, 12:45 AM edit delete reply
Ky looks so cute!!!!!

A school hosting a drag show. Where I live it would be a major scandal and school principal would be 100% fired.
