This Sunday, and just in time from National Pride Month, the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco is hosting its first annual Queer Comics Expo. It is a highlight of the LGBTQ world of comic books, and the organizations that are leading the charge in queer comics like Northwest Press and Prism Comics. It also follows the Cartoon Art Museum’s other successful comic conventions such as the Latino Comics Expo and APAture.

Some of the features of the Queer Comics Expo include local Bay Area comics champion Ed Luce, author of the series Wuvable Oaf, creators of the animation Along Came Lola, Eisner nominated cartoonist Jett Atwood, and Cartoon Art Museum Press Spotlight artist Tyler Cohen. Also included is the feature of “Super Drag Queens”, who will be on hand to “spice things up” at the expo, and those who attend will have an opportunity to mingle with them. Attendees are also encouraged to dress up, draw, meet artists, watch demonstrations, and learn more about the LGBTQ world of comic books.

Tickets are eight dollars for general public, and six dollars for students and senior citizens, and they are available either at the door or in advance from the Queer Cultural Center. Admission into the Cartoon Art Museum is also included. Attendees will also receive a 10% discount at the museum’s bookstore.
