About this project

Dates is an anthology of queer historical fiction that focuses on positive and hopeful representations of queer folks throughout history and across the world. In 2015, we started that mission with Dates 1… and now we need your help to print Volume 2!

The second volume of Dates is going even bigger than the first, with 260+ pages of black and white comics, full color illustrations, and prose! All the art is finished and ready to go, but we still need your help to go to print and finish paying our creators!

Every queer person knows how hard it is to find ourselves in fiction, and how much harder it is to find fiction where our stories don’t end tragically. And of course, it’s particularly difficult to find happy queer characters in historical fiction. We wanted to work towards evening the score, and the result was Dates 1: a 176 page celebration of queer identities of all kinds, across the world and throughout history. We were thrilled by the reception to Dates 1, and we knew people still had more stories to tell, so we decided to do it all again. And just like last year, there are no tragic endings.

A few things have changed this year: all the stories are longer (up to 16 pages!) and all relate to one central theme: Progress. 35 amazing creators have come together to tell stories about personal, societal, and technological progress, creating a total of 218 pages of comics, 16 stunning color illustrations, and 2 short prose stories. Watch a young trans woman grow into herself in 19th century Bengal, or a young woman from the 1920s Dominican Republic study to become a doctor. Or, if you’re interested in a raucous good time, join two innkeepers as they stand their ground in Mesopotamia during Hammurabi’s reign. The final book will be more than 260 pages long, perfect bound, and gorgeous. The stories are all safe for work, too, so you can share the book with all but the youngest of readers. We’re in love with the work our contributors have done—help us share it with the world!

Zora Gilbert and Cat Parra are back, once again, to edit Dates 2! We’re thrilled to say that a number of our creators from the first volume have also returned: 

Returning contributors: 

And, of course, we’re just as excited about all our new faces: 

New Contributors: 

Dante Luiz and Rel’s comics, as well as Ariel Vittori’s illustrations,will be exclusive to the Kickstarter... so get those while you can!

The comics are complete and the book is on its way toward being put together, so the main goal of this Kickstarter is to print Dates 2 as a 6”x9”, 260+ page, perfect bound paperback book, complete with full color comic covers and illustrations and to pay our contributors! 

We’ve already paid our creative teams an on-completion rate of $20/page, but we need to raise the money to increase that to a total of $50 per page

In our funding goal of $22,000: 

  • $7,860 will go towards paying our contributors. 
  • $8,130 will go towards proofing and printing the books 
  • $2,910 will go towards shipping books to backers 
  • $300 will go towards paying for and shipping other backer rewards
  • $2,200 will go towards Kickstarter fees 
  • $600 will be wiggle room

As we hit stretch goals, we’ll be able to print more books, give our creators better pay, and get you some nice bonuses as well! 

$27,000: Spot UV and contributor pay increase - UNLOCKED!

We’ll add spot UV to the cover for some extra flare. Also, contributors/creative teams will be paid an additional $10/page (for a total of $60/page). 

$33,000: Extra print for all (and more contributor pay!) 
We’ll print A D’Amico’s gorgeous Valentine’s Day illustration as a 6”x9” postcard and add it to all tiers $30 and above! Also, contributors/creative teams will be paid an additional$20/page (for a total of $70/page). 

$37,000: DATES 1 REPRINT! 
That’s right! If we hit $37,000, we’ll be able to reprint Dates 1 in all its original glory! If we hit this goal, we’ll be adding extra reward tiers that include Volume 1—so if you want to get your hands on this out of print original, back now! 

$41,000+: Contributor pay increases! 
At $41,000 and for every $5,000 we raise above it, contributors will be paid an additional $10/page (on top of previous increases)!

Risks and challenges

All the comics are finished, we have our printers lined up for books and backer rewards, and all that’s left to do is put the book together and go to print! Our only risks are delays during printing and fulfillment, but we've done this before and know exactly what to expect.

If any delays do occur, rest assured that we'll make sure to notify backers as soon as we can.
