OutWatch Film Festival: No Straight Lines - The Rise of Queer Comics

OutWatch Film Festival: No Straight Lines - The Rise of Queer Comics

OutWatch Film Festival
Every Third Thursday!

Thursday, July 15 7pm

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 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

Online Reviews
• San Francisco Magazine ""Ultimately, No Straight Lines is a tale of triumph, 'a trajectory from the margins to the reaching mainstream audiences, and getting acclaim on international stages,' Kleiman says. 'It's a story about these individuals on a personal journey, struggling for authenticity, and, as luck would have it, there's a payoff.'"" —Andrew Gilbert
