This is a group for anyone interested in getting together to chat about comic books and graphic novels with other LGBTQ+ folks and our allies. The goal here is to socialize with folks we may not otherwise have the pleasure to meet in our daily lives and to hopefully form a good core group that will get to know each other through our discussions of characters and stories. We'll meet once every month to discuss a specific text - you're of course welcome to come whether or not you've read/finished the text, and we'll socialize over some food and drinks. I can't wait to meet you!
Regardless of whether you've been to one of our meetups as of yet, you're invited to come hang out for brunch and then the SF Cartoon Museum's Queer Comics Expo!
We will be meeting at a nearby restaurant (TBA) for brunch from 11am-12:15pm-ish and then we will head into the Cartoon Museum together around 12:30pm-ish. Please bring whoever you'd like to, but make sure to RSVP so that I have a good count for brunch.
You'll need a ticket for the event. If you purchase early, the ticket cost is $8.50. You'll pay $10 at the door. For more ticketing information, click the following link:
If you need a ride, let me know. I'll be driving from Hayward and can absolutely swing by and pick up folks on my way.
"Author and artist expertly balance naivete and worldliness, from both Jeremy and Adrian, allowing readers to empathize with both. The ambiguous ending could serve as a conversation starter that gets teens talking about society's and religion's rules and how challenging it can be as individuals to carve one's own path." — Shelf Awareness
"Writer Hubert and illustrator Marie Caillou explore the emotional fraught world of gay adolescence in this beautifully rendered graphic novel." — Lambda Literary
"In the spirit of Alison Bechdel and other comic artists opting for realism over fantasy as their storytelling methods, a new graphic novel depicts the difficulties of growing up as a closeted gay man ... Adrian's adventures are imbued with thoughtful discussions of art and literature, and are made touchingly relatable by illustrator Marie Caillou." —Huffington Post
