Synopsis

“Lesbians and Gay Men Put It On Paper!”


From Come Out Comix to Fun Home, via Dykes to Watch Out For and Brown Bomber & The Diva, cartoons come to life on screen through this celebration of LGBTQI+ comics, zines and graphic novels. No Straight Lines profiles five pioneers of the queer comics scene from the 1970s onwards – Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, Jennifer Camper, Rupert Kinnard, and Mary Wings – who have used their work to discuss everything from the AIDS crisis and workplace discrimination to searches for love and a good haircut.
