About this event:
In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, join panelists from the popular Comic Book Queers (CBQ) podcast as they discuss important LGBTQ moments in Comic Book history. Comic Book Queers is Chicago's most outrageous comic book podcast; voted as one of the top 10 podcasts by PopCandy. The podcast features long-time and new readers discussing hot comics with a mix of reverence, snark and love for the art form. During the program, the CBQties discuss how portrayals of LGBTQ characters in comic books have changed over time and how those portrayals have influenced each of them. Also, the panel provides a reading list to introduce a new LGBTQ reader to comic books.
This program takes place in the Chicago Authors Room on the 7th floor of the Harold Washington Library Center.
