More Than a Month: The Importance of Healthy Queer Representation in Comics – Panel Discussion

As conventions return to in-person events, we at Fanbase Press feel that it is important and necessary to provide virtual access to those individuals who may experience barriers to attending such events, as well as the panel programming that occurs onsite. In the years to come, our goal is to provide as many virtual panel opportunities as possible to provide greater access not only to viewers, but to the experienced and knowledgeable panelists who may also be limited by access.

Led by Barbra Dillon (editor-in-chief, Fanbase Press), the following panel provides a thoughtful conversation that goes far beyond the fact that queer representation is necessary. Featuring David M. Booher (writer – Killer Queens, Specs), Richard Fairgray (illustrator/writer – Fanbase Press’ Four-Color Heroes, Black Sand Beach, Haunted Hill), A.C. Esguerra (illustrator/writer – Eighty Days, Earhart, City of Poets), Josh Trujillo (writer – Blue Beetle, Washington’s Gay General), and Tilly Bridges (writer – Begin Transmission: The Trans Allegories of The Matrix), the conversation will include how each panelist defines “healthy” queer representation, whether it’s necessary to only tackle the positive stories and aspects of life, and much more.
