About Me

Tee Franklin is a Queer disabled Black woman who writes comics: The Outfit (Nailbiter #27), A Blazin’ (in the Ignatz award winning Elements Anthology), Tears (in the Eisner-winning and New York Times Best Selling Love is Love), and Inclusive Press’ Queer romance graphic novella, Bingo Love. Franklin won the 2017 Queer Press Grant for Bingo Love and raised almost $60k for this graphic novella via Kickstarter. Franklin created her own publishing company, Inclusive Press, in order to publish her own comics, as well as comics by other marginalized creators. She fights for inclusion in comics – no matter the risks – and hopes that the next generation of marginalized comic creators won’t have to put up with what’s been happening for the past 75+ years.

Franklin resides in New Jersey with her dope children, and is a Jets fan. She’s also a social media influencer, in addition to being an activist, a public speaker, and a constant
tweeter.
