Pump Up the Volume

It may difficult to celebrate Pride and who you are this year but it doesn't have to be. You are worthy and you are loved.

Here is a small fraction of LGBTQ+ mutual aid organizations that you can donate to or receive services from. You can also search online for more state specific or organizations more focused on what you want to support.

For the Gworls - helps Black trans people with rent, gender-affirming surgeries, medical expenses, travel.

I'm not really sure what age Wilberforce is supposed to be in these strips. He's about nine in current strips and I feel he's supposed to be six or seven here. Maybe younger. My point being is that why is Wilberforce learning counting in school? We hear all this talk about public schools failing our children but it sounds like the call is coming from inside the house.

They could also just make the background noises and music quieter so that we can hear the dialogue. I have perfectly fine hearing and I have trouble hearing dialogue sometimes. Another complaint I have is that shows are too dark. Of course, you're going to get murdered. You only have one lamp on.
