East Side Mags is and has always been community focused. When we heard that an anthology was coming out to support the victims and survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016 - we were beside ourselves with anticipation. Not only because the comic community had gotten together to put together an amazing collection of original stories to support those affected but also that we already knew so many people involved in the book! We also believe that, well, love is love and it doesn't matter who it is, what gender/religion/ethnicity/background you carry with you, everyone is entitled to the amazing feeling of being loved and loving someone!
So, in an East Side Mags first-ever event, we are hosting more talent on one day than ever before to drive the point home that violence and hatred can't silence the power of love!
We are extremely happy to host:
We'll have copies of the Love is Love anthology for sale as well as copies of some other books that these fine comic professionals have worked on that you can get signed and/or sketched on!
To culminate the day, we at East Side Mags are committed to helping those in need and will be donating 5% of our total days' sales to Equality Florida (www.eqfl.org).
We look forward to seeing everyone and even more so to spreading the love!
