Anthology Release + Holiday Party: 12/18/21, 6pm-10pm
Our yearly effort to send holiday bonuses to LGBTQ and HIV+ incarcerated artists who contributed pieces to our most recent edition of A Queer Prisoner's Comix Anthology is on!!
We have a goal of raising $5000 by the end of November; this amount helps us cover a $100 bonus to each individual contributor, all the administrative fees charged by various prison facilities to send $$ inside, and some outstanding office expenses to keep A.B.O. HQ running into 2022.
Donating and sharing the fundraiser keeps our one-of-a kind project alive; thank you so much for your support!

A.B.O. Comix: A Queer Prisoner's Anthology Volume 4 is available now!

This 374 page, full color magnum opus features comics and art from many of our Edition 1-3 contributors, as well as a ton of new artists.
The A.B.O Comix anthology is a raw, authentic look into prison life from a queer perspective. This book features accomplished cartoonists and first time doodlers in an effort to amplify the voices of all LGBTQ prisoners we are able. Proceeds from this anthology go back to the contributors so that they can access commissary & gender affirming items, healthcare and legal support.
Confined Before COVID19: A Pandemic Anthology by Queer Prisoners features comics, artwork, poetry and short stories about how the pandemic is affecting people inside prisons nationwide.
We took submissions through the month of April and compiled the book in May 2020. You can now get your copy asap!
