Shane Kirshenblatt is working on a new project and he is looking for someone to share their personal experience with bullying in relation to homosexuality. He will then adapt their experience into a comic which he will distribute to schools to raise awareness. This is a great project and a portion of the profits will go to youth programs so if you or someone you know can help with it, please do. More details from Shane below.
As I work to complete the Anything Ghost Graphic novel, I am looking to plant the seeds for my next endeavor.
Given the significance of issues pertaining to homosexuality, specifically as it relates to bullying and tolerance in schools, I am looking to create a book which would be a true account of someone who has struggled with these issues personally (growing up, in school, with family), in order to provide perspective and understanding to those who have pre-conceived notions.
Currently, I have not yet chosen a person to base this book on, so I am opening this up to anyone who may be interested [in] being involved. My goal is to get this into schools and a significant portion of the profits will go to youth programs to support others who are currently struggling.
If you or anyone you know is interested in telling their story, please… email me at shanekirshenblatt (at) rogers.com. My current project is going to keep me busy through June but I’ll be ready to start work in July. Thanks and look forward to putting out something which will hopefully make a positive difference.
