Iridescent is a web content platform that aims to be a repository for LGBTQ+ content designed by LBGTQ+ people. Our goal is to solve some of the issues that occur in other content platforms- implicit and explicit censorship, lack of baked in promotion and marketing tools, and a lack of community- and provide a space for LGBTQ+ content to thrive.
You can see Iridescent as an LGBT comic site or an LGBT novel site. But you can do much more here than read comics and novels- you can join a community! Chat with fans of your favorite series, post fan art, buy merch and more which Iridescent’s integrated account system.
You may have seen our lovely mascot, Eris, floating around the site. But who is she, exactly?
Hair Color: Rainbow
Eris is a being from ancient times. Once a sower of discord, she’s “reformed” and become a benevolent trickster instead. Eris is an artist- but instead of using paper or a tablet, she uses the Earth itself as her canvas. If you’ve ever seen a zebra with spots or a four-colored tulip, that’s probably something Eris did. We’d say she’s sorry for that, but she has no regrets.
At first glance, Eris seems like a sweet and shy person, but she’s not afraid to get aggressive, especially towards bigots. She loves active, chaotic environments, and can be seen attending events ranging from punk rock concerts to pro-LGBT rallies.
She was introduced to the world of web comics by her partner Dez, and fell madly in love. Together, they’re working on a comic called Sailor Iridescent, which is totally an original comic, do not steal.
She and Dez live in a cottage with their cat, Crescent (Cent for short).
