Fraser Valley – FVN’s Don Lehn in conversation with Stacey Chomiak, an LGBTQ children’s book illustrator and author, with two published works being released this year.
She also works in the children’s animation industry and currently Art Directing a series of shorts for DreamWorks.
Her queer illustrated novel (similar to a graphic novel) entitled Still Stace: My Gay Christian Coming-Of-Age Story publishes on October 19 with a Chilliwack book launch happening on November 20.
“I recognize that there is quite a divide in this community with the religious and LGBTQ community, and my story makes peace with both with a happy ending – which is rare. Honestly, I’d love to get more positive conversations going so less people feel alone, especially in such a tough season for everyone.”
