Shout Out Launch!


“Join us for the launch of Shout Out, a queer YA anthology sharing the stories we wish we could have grown up with. Hosted by Toronto’s historic Glad Day Bookshop, we’ll have creators doing live sketches, signing books, and sharing their inspirations. Come meet the community!

In Shout Out you’ll find the adventures of young demon hunters, star-crossed Viking lovers, and cyberpunk street artists in new worlds where brave heroes with diverse queer identities demonstrate the strength of their hearts and the power of their dreams! Our stories have heroes who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and asexual, from creators who share those identities.

Spotlighting the work of diverse voices, this collection includes Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine), Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy), Killian Ng (Legend of Korra: Turf Wars), and many others. With a cover by Naomi Franquiz (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), and a foreword from Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring), Shout Out is a testament to the diversity and strength of the international queer comics community.”
