Limerence Press Explains Gender-Neutral Pronouns in Upcoming Release
I love educational comics, particularly when they’re on topics I want or need to know more about. They’re so much more fun to read than plain text. So I’m eager to see a creative take on gender-neutral language. Limerence Press, Oni Press’ imprint for erotic and sex education comics, has announced A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns by Archie Bongiovanni and co-writer Tristan Jimerson. Here’s the description:
Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender-neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender-neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips-and-tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!
“Archie and Tristan have created an excellent resource that’s funny, easy to understand, and full of actions people can do to make their workplaces and personal lives more inclusive,” said Ari Yarwood, head of Limerence Press. “It’s a book we feel is important, and we’re very proud to be able to publish it.”
A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns is due out June 13 in comic stores and can be preordered with Diamond code FEB18 1690. I’m guessing there’s going to be a surprisingly large audience for this one, whether it’s people who want to know how to deal with the genderqueer people in their lives or those who want to explain their choices to their loved ones or other people they deal with regularly.
Thank you for posting about this! I don’t think I would notice this flipping through Previews, so I appreciate the article! I think this is a great idea and format!
