Jey here, with a little story about how my partner Michelle (xey/xem) and I (they/them) started going out TEN YEARS ago! Wow, time flies! We met through an online roleplaying group and found out we only lived around an hour away from each other so we hung out a lot. Sometimes you just click and want to kiss. I didn’t even know I was gay back then.

The rp we had going was a slow burn fantasy journey which mirrored our own growing relationship a little too well. I used roleplaying as JP as trying out being gay in a really safe way and I’m so thankful for these characters Michelle and I played together. We ended up rehashing them into our webcomic Dead City (which is completed now if you want to check that out)!
