Hey, y'all. Once again, I am currently working on another big side project, this time of a teen LGBT comic under the working title Any Kind. (as in "love of any kind is beautiful") Cheesy, I know, but I feel it kinda fits.
Anyway, I'm mainly debating on the focus matter of the comic. Originally, I was going to set it up so that the plot focuses on a group of close friends, the typical 'rejects' of the school, who undergo a series of slice of life situations that strengthen or hinder each of them individually. In this group, though, we find a very interesting set of characters, such as a peppy girl who is a lesbian, a roughhousing guy who is actually a transgender girl, a jockish boy who is casually homosexual amongst his friends, a pair of kids from the lower class who struggle with their feelings for one another, and a kind and sociable boy who has a very hostile relationship with his family.
However, after going over it with some people, there were those who felt it may have been easier and more powerful for me to have the story mainly focus on my character Abby Townsend, my OC who grows to be a lesbian. In this scenario, the story primarily follows her blossoming love for other girls, her pains and struggles with several girls she falls in love with, and even the conflicts she faces amongst her classmates and several nasty locals.
While I've already got a lot figured out behind Abby's story, I kind of feel like it wouldn't be fair of me to only address one side of the vast LGBT community in the lives of these kids.
Any input that you guys could give on the matter would be highly appreciated, and I promise to deliver some fantastic work depending on what you guys think.
