Queer Movie Night
Screening: No Straight Lines – Rise of the Queer Comics + Queer Comics Pop-Up Exhibition!
No Straight Lines tells the story of five scrappy and pioneering cartoonists, who depicted everything from the AIDS crisis, coming out, and same-sex marriage, to themes of race, gender, and disability. They tackled the humor in queer lives in a changing world, and the everyday pursuits of love, sex, and community.
Their work is funny, smart, and profound, and provides a unique, uncensored window into LGBTQ lives in USA from the 1970s onward, beginning at a time in which there was no other genuine queer storytelling in popular culture. Equally engaging are their personal journeys, as they, against all odds, helped build a queer comics underground that has been able to grow and evolve in remarkable ways.
