Elisha Lim, the illustrator behind the graphic series 100 Butches, has been illustrating beautiful and powerful wall calendars for the past few years. Their Sissy Calendar featured illustrations of people who identify as, celebrate and challenge the word "sissy". This year's calendar, The Comfort of Queer Family Wisdom Calendar, features illustrations of queer writers, artists, and organizers alongside words from Elisha on combating isolation by picking up queer and anti-racist books, organizing, and having conversations with friends. Both calendars are available at BitchMart! Elisha, who is a frequent Bitch contributor, was kind enough to answer a few questions about their calendars, the people featured in them, and what they're up to next.
