Another Sunday, another week that’s not super stacked (Outside potentially the typical Pizza Time San Diego tournament). I really wanted to recommend this last week since I just finished it and it moved me so much, but now I get to. This week’s gay shout out is a manga by the name Love Me For Who I Am, or FukaBoku. It stars a non-binary person named Mogumo, but it delves into nuances of so many different identities that it made me cry multiple times. The way it understood everything, and the way it dealt with how even different people in the LGBTQIA+ community see the world and interact, it was quite frankly beautiful. If you want to know how a lot of us see the world and think, even down to some admittedly uncomfortable details, PLEASE check this series out, it’s only 28 chapters.
If you know of any streamed events not on here, contact me with the relevant info on Twitter and I’ll do my best to talk about and include it in the future!
