(Hey! If you're here to learn about my web comic, WEDGE.
Skip to the end!)

Hi, I'm Ari Fitz.

I tell stories about gender, identity, love and beauty.

For example,  my short documentary about a pregnant butch woman or my sixty second series on what it's like to get dressed as me - a black queer androgynous woman.

I tell these stories because no one else is. 

No one else is sharing the kind of narrative I needed to see when I was 9 years old, 13 years old, 21 years old, and I'd like to close that gap.

I'd like to challenge the way we define beauty, challenge the way we identify ourselves and those around us, challenge the way we decide where we belong. 

 I'd like to expose all of us to more honest stories, 
and I use storytelling as my means of doing so.

 Why am I on Patreon?

Well frankly, I never want to stop.

Patreon gives me the financial freedom I need to keep going. Plus, Patreon allows me to buy equipment, hire videographers  & editors, book studios, acquire wardrobe and so on.

How does this work?

I will only post four updates a month on Patreon. 

These updates will range from new videos and films on YouTube to a new book out of my comic book series, WEDGE. No matter what, there will only be four a month.

Pick how much you'll pledge and you'll be charged that amount per update monthly. For example, if you pledge $2 per video, that's $8 / mo.

Why support ?

I said it before, but think it's important to say it again:
my one goal with all of my content is to tell real stories. 

I want to continue to share the stories you find on my channel and the vibe I bring to YouTube. I don't want anyone else to interrupt that - no sponsors, no agencies, etc. I want to make what I believe in, not what I think will get the most clicks.

I want this to stay honest. 

If you'd like to keep this going, which is wh I'd really love your support.
(Plus, we have a lot of fun on here.)

What about this comic book you keep talking about?

Throughout 2018, I'll release my science fantasy queer & brown AF web comic called WEDGE. The story follows a powerful girl on a search for her first kiss. Debuts Jan 31st!
