GLBTQ comic book geeks unite!

On Sunday, December 4, LLF executive director Tony Valenzuela participated in a gay comic book publishing panel/discussion at this year’s Bent-Con:

a convention that encourages, celebrates and appreciates LGBT and LGBT-friendly comic-book, scifi, fantasy and horror artists, writers, creators, publishers, directors, actors, and producers, that create media targeted directly to LGBT audiences or the larger realm of underground and mainstream pop-culture as a whole.

The panel, titled Publishing Queer: Marketing and Creating Queer Comic Books And Graphic Novels, was lead by moderator Justin Hall (Glamazonia, Prism Comics’ Talent Chair) and included: Brian Andersen (self-publisher, So Super Duper), Charles “Zan” Christensen (publisher, Northwest Press), Robert Fraser (co-publisher, Class Comics), Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), and Alex Woolfson (editor-in-chief, Yaoi911).

Below is part one of the full panel discussion:
