Beyond Boundaries Film Series BABEL No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics

Beyond Boundaries Film Series & BABEL Present “No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics”

The Beyond Boundaries Film Series presents a free screening of the documentary No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics, followed by a discussion panel.

No Straight Lines tells the story of five pioneering cartoonists who depicted everything from the AIDS crisis, coming out, and same-sex marriage to themes of race, gender, and disability. Director Vivien Kleiman provides a window into LGBTQ lives from the 1970s onward via artists Alison Bechdel, Jennifer Camper, Howard Cruse, Rupert Kinnard, and Mary Wings.

Featured cartoonist Alison Bechdel will be appearing in Buffalo on March 16th through Just Buffalo Literary Center’s BABEL series.

No Straight Lines is additionally co-sponsored by BABEL, the Buffalo State Women and Gender Studies Interdisciplinary Minor and UB’s Global Gender and Sexuality Studies Department.
