CHEW VOL. 1: Taster’s Choice

(W) John Layman (A/CA) Rob Guillory

Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic,
which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why.
He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest,
and most bizarre cases.

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up

  • Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
  • Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
  • Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
    acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
  • You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
  • Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
  • Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
  • Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
