Punk kinda has a reputation for being homophobic (and racist, sexist, nationalist ….) and yeah, there are a lot of insecure little men who are drawn to the scene, mistaking anarchy for fascism. But it’s really all about being your own person, doing what you dig, and not being forced to conform to the way other people think you should be, and that’s a downright queer philosophy. So yeah: there are lot of queer punks.
I was lucky to hook up with Drub early in the development of the Tales, and he became one of the first artists to illustrate a story for me.
