Queer characters and narratives are finding their way into a popular growing genre of comics with historical themes and stories. However, writing about the lives of LGTBQ past can present a number of challenges for comics creators today. How do writers and artists create a complete and honest view of historical queer characters and their stories? How do we balance modern labels and values to best represent these characters, their experiences, and the periods they lived in? What tools are available for researching queer lifestyles throughout history? Join Prism Comics and moderator Josh Trujillo (Love Machines), Joseph Hawkins (director of the USC ONE Archive), and creators Kez Pagtakhan (Until the Last Dog Dies), Trina Robbins (The Complete Wimmen's Comix), and Emily Willis (Cassius) as they discuss their work, inspirations, and challenges in presenting LGBTQ history through comics.
