- Will and Raph Chronicles -

The Will and Raph Chronicles are online comic strips about the life of a gay couple. Who are our protagonists? It's Will, a young happy and geeky artist, and Raph, a timid technology enthusiast, who is also geeky.

We've been around for almost 4 years now. You can read our comics completely free on Facebook, Tumblr and Tapas.

- What's the story? -

The comic strips are inspired by anecdotes from the first years of our relationship. It's also inspired from stories from our friends and from our families. It includes a lot of funny stuff, but also some struggles.

- Cool! But now what? -

What we are hoping to show with our Comic book, it's that whatever the sex, gender, age, ethnicity or sexual orientation, we all are entitled to an ordinary life.

Gay characters are often depicted in a negative way in the medias. For example, they are more then often the main character's ''gay best friend'', or they are hypersexualized. We couldn't find characters to identified to, so we thought we could create comics ourselves. Comics that would show what we would like to read.

A fabulously ordinary couple.

- Who is it for? -

The characters stories could happen to anybody. Several young people and also less young people are asking themselves if, one day, everything will be better and if they will be able to live an ordinary life like everybody they know. Is it just a dream to walk with the person we love without being afraid of what people might think?

We want to show it's possible to experience insignificant moments, sad or really awkward, but always with a touch of humor, whoever you are.

- Now what? -

Since we started this project, we received a lot of messages from fans saying our stories helped them, that we're giving them hope.

It makes us think we're maybe making a difference and we would like to reach even more people. To do that, we need your help.

- Will and Raph + Ulule -

We decided to get all of our first three years of comic strips together and make a full book out of it! That's more than 180 pages!

With your help and Ulule, we want to make this dream a reality: paper version of four years of hard work!

With the book, we hope to reach libraries and maybe be known a little bit more.

But wait, there's more! We wrote and drew a 15 pages story called ''What if?'' which will only be available in this book!

- How to help? -

Talk about us, buy our book, share our stories, write us and tell us your anecdotes! Even the smallest gesture can have a big impact!

Also, we thought we could make a bigger difference with this campaign. Why not associate ourselves with an organization who thinks like us?

That's why we are proud to associate ourselves with GRIS Montreal!

GRIS-Montreal (Groupe de Recherche et d’Intervention Sociale) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to debunk myths about homosexuality and bisexuality through the live testimonies of our volunteers.

GRIS is first and foremost a 350-member family who work together towards the same goal, which is ensuring that every child finds their place in school, that every elderly person feels comfortable in their residence, that all newcomers to Quebec fell well integrated and that our Society is open and inclusive.

For each perk sold, money will be donated to GRIS Montreal!

35% = Printing
