Writing Queer: Creating and Writing LGBT Characters
Prism Comics (booth 319) Panel Discussion:
Moscone Center, Room 250/262

Creating genuine and well-rounded LGBT characters is a profound challenge for writers, as they must give voice to a population whose stories have been kept hidden for so long. How do writers, both queer and straight, as well as mainstream and independent, create narratives that reflect the diversity and humanity of LGBT individuals, as well as the obstacles that face them? Moderator Justin Hall (Glamazonia, Prism Comics’ Talent Chair) leads a spirited conversation with some of the most dynamic writers working in comics: Paige Braddock (Jane’s World), Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), Jon Macy (Teleny and Camille), James Robinson (JLA), and a special guest.

Queer Youth and Comics
12:30-1:30pm: Prism Comics (Booth 319) Panel Discussion:
Moscone Center, Room 250/262

A rash of queer teen suicides started the It Gets Better Project, to let LGBT youth know that the pain often inflicted by abusive bullies, authority figures, and family doesn’t have to continue into their adulthood. It really does get better. Join a panel of LGBT cartoonists who are also reaching out to queer youth with stories that educate and inspire, featuring Brian Andersen (So Super Duper), Celina Hernandez (Reignbow and Dee-Va), David Kelly (Steven’s Comics), Christine Smith (The Princess), and moderator and Prism Comics’ president Charles “Zan” Christensen (Northwest Press).
