Official "coming out" date

Okay, now I know the date that one of my characters will be "coming out." The date will be June 7th and will carry on for a few weeks after that. Some of my main characters will have difficulty adjusting and some will be more welcoming. It is not a a coincidence that the character comes out the same month of PRIDE 2010 here in New York.

Buzz about the "coming out" news

Yeah, so I've talked to a few friends about the situation regarding one of my characters from "Cafe con Leche" coming out and it and I have got nothing but positive feedback. Not sure when I'm going to debut this event but a friend suggested that it coincide with Pride Fest 2010 here in New York City, which is June 27. Since that's a Sunday, I think that I would probably start the series on a Monday and carry it through a couple of weeks.
The decision to introduce a gay character was a tough one for me. I realize that I may be alienating a few people, but at the same time it really carries with the "Cafe con Leche" theme of diversity. The strip centers around an inter-racial couple which is already controversial in some places.

Possible new book.

The quest begins. In the first stages of looking for a publisher for a "Cafe Con Leche" book.

One of my characters comes out.

Hi all:

It's been a long time since I wrote a blog entry. I'm just writing to let you know that one of my characters in "Cafe con Leche" will be coming out of the closet in June. Not saying which one, but its not a main character. I've been thinking about doing this for a long time. I think its tailored for my strip.
