The history of comics has always been queer and contemporary LGBTQ+ comics artists are continuing to explore and push the potential of comics to tell the stories of queer lives. Join cartoonists Eleanor Crewes (The Times I Knew I Was Gay) and Meg-John Barker (Life Isn't Binary: On Being Both, Beyond, and In-Between) in conversation with UCL English Lecturer Dr Christine "Xine" Yao at Gay’s the Word Bookshop for an in-depth discussion into the world of comics, which will surely result in a long list of titles to watch out for.
