Episode 36 – Queer Comic Grab Bag 3: Sad Gay Teen Edition

It’s time for another grab bag of gay comics! This week we mostly cover series depicting queer adolescents coming to terms with themselves and their identities and relationships to other people. Plus, Sarazanmai got a spin-off comic so we naturally had to cover that too. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Roadqueen: Eternal Roadtrip to Love
  • A Tropical Fish Years for Snow Vol. 1
  • Sarazanmai: Reo and Mabu
  • Heartstopper Vol. 1
  • Blue Flag Vol. 1-2
  • Queer authenticity and art specifically for queer people
  • Believable depictions of adolescent characters and emotions

You can find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict.

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. Our discussion this episode contains spoilers for all the aforementioned titles, as well as discussions of police/policing and homophobia both external and internalized.
