CAKE DEBUT: Little Heart, a Comic Anthology for Marriage Equality from 2D Cloud & [MN]Love

Little Heart is a comic anthology created to show support for marriage equality, produced in partnership with 2D Cloud & [MN]Love. The comics included in the volume cover a variety of material, from auto-bio to science fiction, intimate vignettes, and romantic incidentals; work created to show that love strikes all walks of life. This project was spawned by the very urgent need to fight the 2012 referendum that seeks to instill discrimination and hate in the Minnesota state constitution. We have enlisted artists across the US, Canada, and a small sampling of international artists.
