Family Portraits Issue Three
Family Portraits tells the stories of a group of unique individuals, and explores the awesomeness of their sexual orientations and/or gender identities.
This issue begins with a comic about my first experience doing a haka. The next piece honours the queer and trans rulebreakers in our lives. ‘The Escape’ is an homage to Roller Derby, and the brilliant Sissy Asskick.
My Name is’ tells the story of Rewi, and his journey from child to man.
This issue also explores my coming out as trans and gender fabulous. Through this story our Author examines the influence of his own culture and family. It also looks into the effects of suicide as the author grieves the death of his friend.
The last story celebrates the lives of Albert and William; two men who find love in a small town, at a time when being homosexual was illegal.
