So when it comes to webcomics I'm a mixed feelings kind of lady. Sometimes I love them and other times well...I'm more "take it or leave it." Despite my ambivalence about webcomics in general, I decided to check out www.jesusloveslesbians.com because it was getting rave reviews from the Huffington Post and www.AfterEllen.com.
Well, it was not what I expected but I'm still a fan. To be honest, with the URL www.jesusloveslesbians.com I figured this would be a kitschy, humourous look at the relationship between faith and religion. Not so much. Instead what you have is something more like a frequently updated, illustrated memoir that gives you insight into the experiences of a bisexual young woman raised in an Evangelical household. (Side note: It is interesting to me that webcomic focuses on a protagonist who explains her sexual orientation as more bisexual,yet the title is about lesbians...).
Aaaanways, to be fair, it occassionally is funny in that "Oh...that's my life way.," and does touch on religious themes like going to an affirming church in San Francisco vs. a restrictive, Evangelical one in the protoganist's childhood suburb.
My final verdict is that it is a reflective, sometimes funny reminder of what it means to come out in a white, Evangelical and middle class family within a LGBT community that is sometimes your rock and othertimes biphobic.
Even if this was not your experience, I would still take a look to relive your early days after coming out (if you are out) like your first Pride Parade, your first days with a live in partner, etc.
P.S. I also want to point out this comic that tackles biphobia in a basic way, and also includes a subtle reminder that transphobia is offensive too. I think both comics were handled well because they weren't preachy, they were conversational.
What are you thoughts?
