Artist Name: ABO Comix

About Artist: ABO Comix is a collective of creators and activists who work to amplify the voices of LGBTQ prisoners through art. By working closely with prison abolitionist and queer advocacy organizations, they aim to keep queer prisoners connected to outside community and help them in the fight toward liberation. The profits generated go back to incarcerated artists, especially those with little to no resources. Using the DIY ideology of “punk-zine” culture, ABO was formed with the philosophy of mutual support, community and friendship.
