Celebrate PRIDE: 10 LGBTQIA+ Webcomics To Check Out!
Happy PRIDE month to everyone and anyone and the ones who aren’t under a specified gender as well (we are including you, too!) This wonderful month of June is to celebrate PRIDE (and webcomics) whether that be queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, ace, transgender, transitioning; you are all to be celebrated every day, not just this month.
However, since we get a whole month to truly bring out the big guns, we wanted to celebrate with ten webcomics that are either by LGBTQIA+ writers, artists, and the like or they have LGBTQIA+ themes in them. Nonetheless, they usually link together — most of these have prevalent LGBTQIA+ themes in them.
All of these webcomics have been okay’d by the creators beforehand. We went on a ferment to contact and ask every single artist and creator to use images from their webcomic. We also expressed that we would add their social media handles and any Patreon’s they may have. Any webcomic images we have used are cited, and you can click on them to go to the webpage of their webcomic. We have not used any webcomic — in any way — unauthorized.

So, let’s strap in for the wonderful PRIDE and LGBTQIA+ webcomics to enjoy this month.
Tinder is a webcomic by Rhael McGregor. This is an LGBTQ+ comic about a witch who falls for another witch at her program. However, there is a catch though, the main character finds that she is having trouble not exposing her crush because every time she sees her, the main character’s hair sets on fire. And, it only seems to be getting worse. What can she do?
Celebrate PRIDE month with this wonderful webcomic by Rhael McGregor.
A Week In Warrigilla (AWIW) is a fantastic webcomic not only inclusive of the community but, also created by LGBTQIA+ creators as well. The creators of this comic are @berryartistic (she/her/girl) and her girlfriend, @the-picayune (she/her).
This webcomic is about Hazel and Willie — two ace/aro girls — who get trapped in a supernatural region while road-tripping through rural Queensland. The comic is inspired by surreal horror and mystery adventure fiction. A Week In Warrigillacenters on collaboration and companionship within an established queer relationship.
Beware, however, it does contain mild gore, violence, and body horror. You can find A Week In Warrigilla on Tumblr and you can support Pi and Teloka’s Ko-Fi!
3. Namesake by Megan Lavey-Heaton & Isabelle Melançon
Namesakeis a wonderful webcomic by @savvyliterate and @Secondlina (on Twitter). They go by Megan and Isabelle. You can find more information about the fantastic creators behind this comic here (Megan) and here (Isabelle). Namesake, on the other hand, is a comic about Emma Crewe.
Emma Crewe does not care for books but has the power to become lost in one. When Emma lands into another world following a library fire, she discovers she is a Namesake. Essentially, one with the power to open portals to other worlds via the power of their name.
These portals are strange, fantasy, and fairy-tale lands we are accustomed to (thanks to literature, cinema, and folk tales). The rules of her new title are simple: Alices always go to Wonderland. Wendy’s always go to Neverland. Nonetheless, Emma finds herself in Oz — where she is expected to act as the latest in a long line of Dorthy’s.
Instead, she unveils a magical conspiracy plot that is more than 100 years in the making. While Emma is on the Yellow Brick Road, however, her sister Elaine discovers she is a writer. One gifted with the power to make stories come to life…
Will Elaine become the power Emma needs to get back home? You can support Namesake on Patreon, their online store, and check out the webcomics they are enjoying!
Circuits and Veins is a webcomic by Jem Yoshioka, whom you can find on the Twitter-sphere. This is a charming webcomic about what to do when the cutie-patootie that moves next door to you is an android. In a world of automation, artificial intelligence, and reliable public transportation; two awkward dorks try to work out how to date each other.
Picture of You is by Gibson Twist. This webcomic is inspired by real events. It follows the ill-fated deliverance of Peter Morris and the best friends he ever lost. Pictures of You is a long road filled with sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. What more could you want?
Freeskate is a webcomic by Colin (he/him). The webcomic has one of the simplest synopsis, but that is what makes it incredibly intriguing. This comic is just about the daily happenings at the Silver Brooks Skating Club.
This webcomic has two main characters who find love eyes in the first few panels of Freeskate, and the art is dynamic. The creator behind Freeskate, Colin, is on Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and you can check out the webcomic on Tapas!
Lesbian Mershark Adventures is a webcomic created by trianglart on Tumblr. This comic is similar to the preceding webcomic. The synopsis is minimal, but the art and story are compelling.
This is a webcomic about a mershark who has a crush on a pretty lifeguard. Finally, she gets the courage to go to talk to her… so what could happen next? As far as social media goes, trianglart has a Tumblr and they use the pronouns she/they.
Help Wanted is a webcomic by Payton. This is a cute webcomic about a life/romantic comedy story. A recent college graduate named Anne Black has a dream to get out of the small town she grew up in, so she moves to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Anne takes the first job she can get her hands on as a live-in-caretaker at the Lynnhurst House. Her new home, nonetheless, is much more than she bargained for. Between the eccentric tenants, her cute and flirty boss, and the mysterious happenings on the property…
Anne begins to suspect the Lynnhurst house is not your normal apartment building. You can find the webcomic on Tumblr and Tapas. You can find Payton on Twitter, Tumblr, and support their Patreon as well.
Stupidly Beautifulis a webcomic by Mariel, whom might we add is a definite star with the webcomic Stupidly Beautiful. This webcomic is simple: an experimental webcomic about a polyamorous relationship. There are no love triangles required.
This webcomic is very much so inclusive of LGBTQIA+ themes throughout. If you want to find Stupidly Beautiful you can do so. Mariel has a Tumblr, well two of them for the amazing art Mariel does, an Instagram, A Ko-Fi (to help support!)
And, an AO3; above all else, you can find the webcomic on Tapas!
Danse Orbitaleis a webcomic by Princie (Beanie) who is NB and uses (they/them). The webcomic Danse Orbitale is about two friends (and a few more). They enjoy dancing ballet together, but really can’t be bothered about its heavy gender roles.
This is a webcomic about feeling unfettered and free no matter what you choose to do. French synopsis of Danse Orbitale: Est une BD centrée autour de 2 amis qui aiment danser ensemble et se soucient bien peu des rôles genrés de la danse classique.
At the end of the day, there are so many awesome inclusive webcomics to check out. These are merely just the cream of the crop we have suggested to you guys.
There are many on Tumblr, Tapas, and so much more. If we were you, we would check out as many as you can this month and every month of the year. These artists are fantastic, they are creative, and they make unimaginable inclusive webcomics. A huge shout out to all of these creatives for approving The Daily Fandom to use their artwork for this piece.
We truly appreciated asking and getting the go-ahead. Everyone was so wonderful to have agreed and even given us pictures to use. What are you waiting for? Go read some webcomics!
