Hi! I'm Chia and my girlfriend is Poppy and we're the main characters in Sesame But Different, a slice-of-life lesbian comic that pokes fun at moments (sometimes embarrassing but, hopefully, mostly relatable) in our lives. We are very similar: we share many similar hobbies, tv shows, etc. However, we're also very different: Poppy is more sporty, and I'm nerdier; I'm more disciplined, and she's laid back. So we're same-same, but also different. Hence the name.

Back when I was a young and closeted lesbian, I used to search all over the internet (unintentionally losing bits of my innocence along the way) for content that could reassure me that there were others like me and that I could be happy one day⁠—thankfully, I can attest that it truly does get better and, about a year ago, I created this comic to provide more LGBTQ visibility by playfully showcasing a real same-sex relationship.

The best part about creating these comics is that it allows me to take silly, everyday moments with my girlfriend that might otherwise pass and be forgotten and, instead, share them with people all over the world! In addition, it's both delightful and uncanny to learn that our readers can identify with so many of our experiences... even some of our weird inside jokes.

These are strange times—Poppy and I are fortunate that we've been healthy during the quarantine (albeit always short on toilet paper), but we hope that you're all keeping safe and doing well!

My reflexes are like that too. I'd probably end up accidentally giving one of my friends a black eye someday...

I've recently been obsessed with this weird hot dog onesie that I have. I once walked past my sister's college class meeting in it. Needless to say, they all saw and burst out laughing.
