Three Dollar Riot

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, Sasha is releasing Three Dollar Riot, a history comic she started writing 8 years ago, right as she first started doing drag!

Inspired by numerous first-person accounts and real-life legendary figures (Sylvia Rivera, Tammy Novak, Stormé Delarverie, Ivan Valentin, Marsha P Johnson, and more) this 36-page comic charts the evening of June 27th, leading up to the riots, pulling back the curtain on what life was like for trans folks and drag queens on the eve of “gay liberation”. The artwork is all drawn, colored, and lettered by Velour herself, in a pulp style inspired by the incredible Tarpé Mills, the first woman to create a femme superhero (Miss Fury) in comics. This updated version includes full historical citations, recommended further readings, and a hand-drawn introduction by Velour. Learn your history with a fantastic flair!
