It’s here! I’ve been gagging to do a Manchester Pride window so long so when Penguin & Waterstones Deansgate decided we could do a Free To Be Me/ Pride mash up I was made up! ⁣ ⁣ We got glitter curtains (obviously), rainbow stars, pride inclusive rainbows, a rainbow bee, drag queens and some stunning queer faces on the window! 🌈⁣ ⁣ This is an awesome, super pridealicious full circle moment. I used to come to this store every other weekend when I was younger and read all the graphic novels and art books and sit in the window seat on the first floor and stay for ages. I remember 17 year old Teen Dom here the day I decided to come out. ⁣ ⁣ There’s only six copies left of FTBM instore but more on the way. Those 6 have been signed with little empowering messages inside for whichever reader picks them up too 🌈. The window is up for a week (I think) facing the House of Fraser side of Waterstones! Feel free to send and tag me in any pics.⁣ ⁣ Still can’t believe FTBM has had two window features in two months! ⁣ ⁣ Also shout out to me for remembering to write and draw everything backwards in the window so you can read it 😂🤦🏻‍♂️💖.⁣ UPDATE - x30 copies more of the book are now in store :) @waterstones @penguinplatform @penguinukbooks @manchesterpride @waterstonesmcr

33 and thriving baby (and 3 wines in). Genuinely didn’t think I’d get tonight off due to workload but also didn’t realise how much I needed a margarita and a vino. 😂. ⁣ ⁣ THANK YOU to everyone for all the birthday love today, it means the world to me and I’m very very touched. Sending you all a hug and a rainbow right now 🌈🌷

HAPPY BRIGHTON PRIDE! Have an amazing weekend to everyone who is going and keep walking in your authentic LGBTQ+ truth you awesome unicorns. I’ve created some new work AND a @kylieminogue piece as she’s appearing tonight YAS! My workload is crazy at the moment so I won’t be there but make sure you’re safe, with friends and have an awesome time. Feel free to help yourself to wallpapers going up today too 🌈💖. It’s illegal to be LGBTQ+ in 73 countries...and lastly, feel free to share any of these images. The smallest form of activism can sometimes be just reposting an image or artwork to stories or main feed. Whilst you can’t see how much of a difference it makes, it’s HUGE 💖🌈💖 And don’t forget, I love you just the way YOU are.

Watch me draw @freidaslaves and @cheddar_gorgeous for @method_uk x @lgbtfdn campaign ✍️ all done on iPad with @procreate app and @apple pencil 💖🌈🥳 #DragCleans #LookGoodDoBetter

domandink

AD | It’s not every night you get invited to a drag show (with front row seats) that also involves a really good kitchen surface cleaner spray! Last night’s @method_uk x @lgbtfdn #DragCleans event was absolutely EPIC. I have never lived my best life so much. It was so brilliant to go and meet so many amazing queens and kings. Even tempted to do it all over again tonight LOL. ⁣ ⁣ It’s so exciting to see brands like method organise events like this with their charity partners so closely involved and raising funds for the amazing hard work the volunteers at @lgbtfdn do! Thank you method for this brief. I have LIVED for it!⁣ ⁣ My second queen I chose to illustrate is Manchester queen and scene LEGEND @cheddar_gorgeous and her empowering line about drag and identity that I paraphrased for this illustration. ⁣ ⁣ ‘It enables me to amplify my voice and amplify the aspect of myself that people don’t see in everyday life’ - Cheddar Gorgeous. ⁣ ⁣ Don’t forget to head to my stories and you can get yourself some Cheddar whatsapp and lock screen wallpapers AND head to @method_uk to find out more about the queens (and king) taking part in this brilliant campaign of epic fierceness!⁣ ⁣ #MethodAddict⁣ #DragCleans ⁣ #LookGoodDoBetter

AD | Fierce drag queens AND sustainable eco friendly cleaning products by @method_uk ...what more could you want?! ⁣ ⁣ With summer being non stop Pride events, it’s been something important for me to work with brands with an authentic campaign and promise to keep working with the LGBTQ+ community. method have teamed with Manchester based @lgbtfdn to bring you #DragCleans, a campaign of sass, weaves, tucks and some sickening anti-bac surface cleaner! (Amongst other products). ⁣ ⁣ I’m quite cautious of certain brands and their pride launches so I wanted to know exactly what method are doing for @lgbtfdn and it turns out, aside from a jaw dropping donation they’ve given to the charity, they’re also passionate on working with them all year round. YES 👏 ⁣ The queens are all appearing for two nights for their #DragCleans show and I get to go TOMORROW NIGHT so you better keep those eyes peeled. ⁣ ⁣ I super enjoyed creating this artwork of queen @freidaslaves and her empowering line about being queer and of colour but also celebrating yourself!⁣ ⁣ ‘They see a queer black man in a dress dancing and having fun. I like being that representation.’ - Freida Slaves ⁣ ⁣ And if you head to my stories you can get yourself some Freida whatsapp and lock screen wallpapers AND head to @method_uk to find out more about the queens (and king) taking part in this brilliant campaign of epic fierceness!⁣ ⁣ #MethodAddict⁣ #DragCleans ⁣ #LookGoodDoBetter ⁣

Is it even a #FreeToBeMe event if there isn’t the giant book and a glitter curtain?! ⁣ ⁣ YALC (Young Adult Literature Con) you were AMAZING. Thank you to all the FTBM readers who waited patiently and queued for book signings, badges and hugs. Meeting you meant the world to me 💖. I honestly appreciate all the support for the book and don’t take any of this for granted. THANK YOU! ⁣ ⁣ Such a great experience and we even had a cute #Pride FTBM colouring in workshop! WERK 🥳💅🏽🌈. I feel even more inspired and so excited for all the top secret book stuff I have planned now ;) ⁣ ⁣ Other highlights include randomly talking to Brendan Fraser about the air con and using the word ‘moist’ far too much, telling Malorie Blackman and @junodawson about a piercing incident that went wrong (lol) and randomly being asked to judge a cosplay contest at the end. WHAT A DAY HUNS!⁣ ⁣ Thank you @yalc_uk for having me, the epic team Penguin and @harrietvenn for all their non stop help, my LG @laurieemtweets for just being awesome and helping and my babe @rammrayn for helping me put up glitter curtains , getting me from A to B and also reminding me to eat LOL (I will treasure that banana forever). 🌈🌈 And yes, that’s a Return Of The Jedi tank top 😂🤓

Starting your Thursday morning off with a bit of @lilnasx and his coming out story 🌈 I think he’s such a legend, considering in the hip hop and country music communities there is not as much LGBTQ+ mainstream and ‘out’ artists, he’s going to, as he said on BBC Breakfast be ‘opening doors’ for so many 💖 ⁣ ⁣ Also, his stage wardrobe is LIT. *googles sequin pink jacket with fringing* 😂🥳🕺

Had to take a minute today to look at how far the #FreeToBeMe journey has come. A year ago I was working my arse off doing freelance illustration and part time personal shopping and now I’m full time freelance and doing #Pride and LGBTQ+ podcasts, interviews and panels for @penguinplatform , @skinnydiplondon x @hatesucks (alongside some f**king amazing humans) , have a book that became a number #1 bestseller on amazon on THREE charts and I’m in flipping @gaytimes balancing books on my head. WHAT IS LIFE. ⁣And yes, those glitter jeans are incredible, thanks for the lend @mich.zahra ⁣ Want to do a massive shoutout to public figures like @jadethirlwall @cherylofficial and @mnek for posting about this book. To clarify, these weren’t paid partnerships, they just did it because they are AWESOME AF and iconic. Thank you so much! ⁣ ⁣ So aside from #FreeToBeMe shop windows, pin badges, queer exhibitions, brand partnerships and store takeovers, there’s even more to come and I cannot wait. ⁣ ⁣ Please keep messaging me your stories about the book and how it’s helped. They show this book (and lot of other LGBTQ+ publishing) is needed right now and is helping start conversations and promoting inclusivity and love. One girl told me she had filled the book in cover to cover, gave it to her parents and used it to come out them. They embraced her and were brilliantly supportive about it. I was nearly in tears in the number 38 to Clapton Pond. ⁣ ⁣ So keep sending me your stories, I want to do a post with them all in so brands, publishers and social media can see how this book is reaching and engaging with readers of all ages. I never knew it would have such an impact and I want to thank all of you, my lovely Instagram lot for posting and promoting this. It means everything to me and to so many more 💖🌈💖🌈

Sometimes on a rainy Friday you just need a bit of @glynfussell , co-founder of @sink_the_pink sassing out a killer lewk to rainbow up your eve am I right ?!⁣ ⁣ *This quote was taken from Glyn’s interview with Zoe Paskett for the Evening Standard, July 2018⁣ ⁣ **I want a cape and catsuit combo one day.

Starting your Monday off with some empowering words off @ladyphyll , executive director of yesterday’s #UKBlackPride at the Stonewall Rally at @nycpride last week! I spoke about @ukblackpride earlier this week at a Q&A and how it is one of the most inclusive and diverse prides I’d ever been to. If you’re white just be aware that you’re there to support and help promote the voices of LGBTQ+ people of colour in our community 🌈. Gutted I missed it all yesterday but there is always next year 🌈🙏🌈 📸 2nd image : @gaytimes NYC story highlight 3rd image TBC

HAPPY PRIDE LONDON! I’ve gathered together just a few of my #FreeToBeMe characters with my favourite empowering quote from the book 💖. I’ve also put together some of my favourite LGBTQ+ work I’ve created in the past few weeks AND a new edit of a rainbow @jadethirlwall on being an LGBTQ+ ally! Yas! Unfortunately due to a personal/family matter I cannot be at Pride this weekend now BUT please go and show your support for the community. Talk to others, share your experiences and empower one another 💪🌈👏 . I’ve left the ‘Safe With Me’ pride safety badges at the @prideinlondon pop up shop and loads at @warehouseuk on Argyll Street! All FREE to let other LGBTQ+ people know they are safe to sit/stand with you on a bus/tube/train etc. And mostly to let them know you ACCEPT them for who they are. If you get to see the #FreeToBeMe window at @warehouseuk make sure to go and check out my illustrated #Pride mirrors on the shop floor and fitting room with empowering queer quotes 💪🌈 . It’s illegal to be LGBTQ+ in 73 countries...and lastly, feel free to share any of these images. The smallest form of activism can sometimes be just reposting an image or artwork to stories or main feed. Whilst you can’t see how much of a difference it makes, it’s HUGE 💖🌈💖 And don’t forget, I love you just the way YOU are.

‘This store is a safe and happy place for all LGBTQ+ people’ @warehouseuk Whilst I was illustrating on mirrors across the shop floor, fitting rooms and stairs I wanted to make sure I got some drag queens, rainbow llama-corns and rainbow vibes on them but also mainly, I wanted to get quotes in to remind any LGBTQ+ customer they have and always will be welcome at @warehouseuk k. Sometimes you just need to know where your safe places are to feel more comfortable and the store on Argyll St is just that. Also slide number 3 on this post. My heart. The amazing #FreeToBeMe window is on display until end of day Sunday 7th July so make sure you get in this week for your #Pride fitting room selfies, FREE pride safety badges and more. Every copy of FTBM sold has 100% of profits go to @stonewalluk . This is the first time Warehouse has ever done a Pride window so make sure you keep tagging them in photos and stories, I want them to see how loved this is! Tomorrow I’ll be doing a full on Warehouse takeover with some #FreeToBeMe styling sessions AND a Head Office Q&A with my queen Evie D @allaboutevied about inclusivity, diversity and what brands can do more for LGBTQ+ outside of Pride month! 💖

domandink

I . Cannot. Believe. This. #FreeToBeMe Window. Thank you WAREHOUSE for this amazing opportunity to promote the #FreeToBeMe message at your flagship Argyll St store on Oxford Circus 🌈🌈🌈! This is HUGE. A year ago I was working as their in store personal shopper for this store, part time, styling and then going home and doing late nights till 4am doing the book. Never thought a year later this is how it would turn out 😍🌈. I worked for @warehouseuk for 15 years on and off. Throughout that time I styled many an LGBTQ+ hun. This means so much to me that the brand have got behind me and FTBM and it’s message of self-love and pride. This isn’t just any brand cashing in on a rainbow, the team at head office have been so passionate and clear about how they wanted to convey the FTBM message through visuals and in store activities. EVERY copy of FTBM sold in stores or online will have 100% OF PROFITS donated to @stonewalluk AND I’ll be in store Saturday 29th illustrating Pride quotes all over the mirrors and fitting room! The biggest shout out to @allaboutevied , who I have the pleasure to know for a number of years now. Thank you for being a fantastic ally to the LGBTQ+ community, constantly being passionate and about my ideas and really LISTENING (as a lot of brands don’t do this in pride season) about how to do an authentic pride campaign in store. You truly are a great human and I’m inspired to know you and your amazing cheekbones ED💖. Huge love to @laura62 and @stephanie_rachel_pittam for installing this window today. 💖big love to you! Things to know: - in store we have my Pride ‘Safe With Me’ badges arriving this week. All free. - July 3rd I’ll be doing an insta takeover including a Q&A with head office about how brands can work with the LGBTQ+ community and #FreeToBeMe! - July 3rd (this is a busy day LOL) I’ll be doing styling on some bloody great LGBTQ+ influencers in store and sorting them with some banging garms! - instore you can come and take selfies with the window and fitting room mirrors with pride quotes to make your day slay. Still cannot believe this is happening. HAVE AN AMAZING WEEKEND EVERYONE 🥳🌈

First ever DOM&INK window scheme launched! Thank you Bailey Nelson for commissioning me for this Pride window with it launching at their Old Spitalfields and Covent Garden stories 🌈. I’ve worked with @baileynelsonuk for two years now and they consistently work with LGBTQ+ influencers for events, social content and more! Thank you BN UK team and @claireposthuma for all your awesome work on this you total babe. I wanted anyone who walked past this window to feel a connection, whether they were out and proud, questioning or any other type of way, I wanted them to feel SEEN and LOVED. In store there’s a competition with colour me in frames to WIN a pair of frames AND some pride badges that should be arriving later this week!

Never in a million years did I think I’d have a book and product stocked IN a store on Carnaby Street. WTF. Cannot believe I’ve got my work up at @wbtclondon for #CreativePride with so many inspiring queer creatives! This exhibit is so powerful and beautiful and in times of shit weather (don’t even get me started on the amount of hate crime atm) this is the PERFECT cheer you up QUEER POWER rainbow moment. #FreeToBeMe is in stock and SIGNED (edit - only copies that are out are the ones left!), exclusive FTBM @punkypins , DOM&INK x @rockonrubyxx mugs, shoppers, tees and postcards AND 3 of my prints! I haven’t even started on all the other amazing prints, badges, patches and more off the other creatives. It’s awesome! I left today with a @beeillustrates print AND illustration. There are also workshops with the artists on throughout the month (mine TBC) 😂🌈 10% of all sales go towards @openingdoorslondon , a UK charity that helps LGBTQ+ people aged 65 and over. .#CreativePride is on until 08/07/2019 is FREE ENTRY and also has rainbow stairs. All the content hun. HUGE thank you to @withamemily for approaching me for this and organising such a beautifully safe and empowering LGBTQ+ art space and @rockonrubyxx for their huge number of orders they put through to meet deadline. Hugs for ALL OF YA! 🌈🌈🌈

I was gonna write a long caption for this about hate crime and pride month but tbh the brilliant @leopardprintelephant has put into words exactly how I feel. Hate crime for any gender, sexuality, race, disability should never happen but sadly it does. At 21 I had to fight off six , yes SIX grown chav men at 1am because they were pestering me and my date. (Date ran off and left me - cheers Dave you wondered why you never got a second date 😂🤦🏻‍♂️) Thank fuck I’d schooled myself on Buffy, blocking a punch and growing up in Bolton. And if you think I’m talking crap that these hate crimes are happening and ‘everything’s alright now isn’t it?’ then follow the @gaytimes article I posted in this post. FACT: LGBTQ+ hate crimes in 2017 in London: 1,488 LGBTQ+ hate crimes in 2018 in London: 2,308 And that’s JUST LONDON. (Source: BBC News/ Metropolitan Police)

They sure ain’t 👏👏👏 I like to think that one day you can walk into a store to see fully inclusive mannequins of all shapes, sizes, genders, disabilities and more together and it will be EPIC AF 🌈 For the time being though, please ignore that extremely problematic Tanya Gold article in The Telegraph and be your AWESOME SELF PLEASE 🌈 Edit - Any negative comments will be automatically blocked cause hun don’t have time for bullshit 😘 UPDATE DUE TO BELOW COMMENTS - any negative comments that are NOT constructive or add to the conversation and are there just to provoke and upset will be removed.

#InclusivityIllustrated @ladyphyll is an icon, a legend and a QUEEN. Executive director of @ukblackpride , @gaytimes cover star and recently became the first black woman to head up the LGBTQ+ organisation the Kaleidoscope Trust. An organisation that ‘works to uphold the rights of LGBTQ people in countries where they do not have equal rights and are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or gender identity’ . @kaleidoscope_t I have to say UK Black Pride, for me, was the best pride I have ever been to. It was fully inclusive and so diverse. It’s important that if you go, and you’re white like me, you’re aware of your white privilege and are there to support those of the LGBTQ+ community of colour, disabled and more. This is such an important yearly pride event and one I intend to go to every year 🌈

domandink

What a weekend. The book hit #1 best seller on Amazon in 3 different charts (all down to you lovely lot) AND we got our first bit of #FreeToBeMe merch baby!

Thank you Carmen, Nat, Alesha, Harriet, Nina and Emily (you were missed) for being the best Peng-Kween team I could ask for and supporting this book from early stages to now.

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia! The below excerpt from @gaytimes sums up one of many reasons why we need to raise awareness on #IDAHOBIT ‘It’s still illegal to be gay in more than 70 countries, while it’s punishable by death in 10. Sometimes it’s hard to believe a third of the world isn’t safe, sometimes it’s not so hard’ I’m also going to attach the @stonewalluk helplines in my stories later for anyone that feels they need to talk 💖 Note - everyday should be a day against any sort of phobia or ism 👏

Quick sketch of ‘Keloid Queen’ @sophirelee ✍️ I’ve found her to be so inspiring after suffering an accident which left her with burns and a keloid tumour on her face. Shes a fellow northerner, openly documents her journey on her Instagram and stories and also this Hun serves LEWKS in her outfits! She’s just brill and I had to draw her 💖💖🤦🏻‍♂️ I want to start illustrating more representation on my feed. More on that tomorrow 🥳
