Seven Feminist Stories (Working Title)

To support the creation of a semi-autobiographical and fictional comic book by Jesse Ruiz about the complexities of bicultural, biracial, womxn and queer identity in the Latinx and Asian-American communities. The author celebrates difference, reveals shared public feelings, and imagines new queer utopias with multicultural and feminist agendas by using a medium that is far-reaching, while creating opportunities for unheard and underrepresented voices. The primary purpose of this project is to explore and feature underrepresented voices, deepen appreciation for diverse cultures and analyze intersectional feminism through comics.
