Inari Okami has been depicted as male, female, and androgynous. In this issue, I want to see writing that breaks down gender barriers.
The figure of Inari Okami is often linked to the fox, or kitsune. Foxes symbolise the cunning trickster. They are generally not malicious, but rather must use their intelligence to become the victor of their conflict.
In terms of this issue, I see the fox as being the figure who uses its knowledge to cross boundaries and educate others about the importance of being true to oneself. This issue is a celebration of the LGBTQA+ community. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
