PRISM COMICS HOSTS ONLINE PANEL
“LGBTQ+ COMICS AND SOCIAL ACTIVISM”
FOR WONDERCON@HOME 2021
Are comics mightier than the sword? Can comics change hearts and minds and entertain at the same time? Now more than ever, LQBTQ+ comics creators are claiming their diverse identities, writing their own stories, and using the art form to build empathy and inclusion. Join Prism Comics, Moderator Justin Hall (No Straight Lines; Professor, California College of the Arts) and a diverse group of panelists as they discuss comics as a source of social power and community. Panelists include Tara Madison Avery (We’re Still Here, Alphabet; publisher Stacked Deck Press), Jennifer Camper (Juicy Mother, Founder, Queers & Comics conference), Trinidad Escobar (Of Sea and Venom, Tryst, Little Corn Fields), Lawrence Lindell (From Truth with Truth, Still, Couldn’t Afford Therapy, So I Made This Again; Co-Founder, TheBAYlies), and Anand Vedawala (100 Years From Now Our Bones Will Be Different; Executive Director, San Francisco Zine Fest).
