Pride High Rolls out Webcomic and Braille Adaptation!|
posted September 12th, 2007
Creator Tommy Roddy has announced that Pride High, the story of a super-powered gay-straight alliance, is now also available in both webcomic and Braille formats.
"LGBT youth often have circumstances that discourage the purchase of LGBT-themed reading material, while visually impaired fans have relied on commentary from sighted friends" says Tommy Roddy. "Expanding accessibility, especially for communities prominently featured in the comic book, is a core goal of Pride High."
First released a year ago in print, the webcomic version of Pride High is updated every Saturday morning. Please visit http://pridecomics.com/webcomic for the latest installment.
The Braille version of Pride High #1, with adaptation by John D. Taylor and transcription by The LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, can be purchased directly from Tommy Roddy at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Braille adaptation for Issue 2 is currently in production.
The LightHouse promotes the independence, equality, and self-reliance of people who are blind or visually impaired. For more information, please visit http://www.lighthouse-sf.org.
