OAKLAND―We Are More Opening Reception

July 16 @ 5:30 pm7:30 pm


Excerpt from La Matriarca by Breena Nuñez.

Join artists Ajuan Mance, Lawrence Lindell, and Trinidad Escobar, as well as filmmaker Vivian Kleiman at California Humanities for the opening of new Art of Storytelling exhibit We Are More: Stories by Queer Comic Artists . Hear remarks from the artists and California Humanities staff, browse books and art for sale by the artists, view clips of forthcoming documentary film NO STRAIGHT LINES: THE STORY OF QUEER COMICS, and enjoy a light reception.

We Are More highlights the connections between queer identity and other lived experiences, through the artwork and storytelling of four queer-identified comic artists. Forthcoming film NO STRAIGHT LINES, supported by a California Documentary Project grant, tells the story of how LGBTQ comics evolved from a marginalized underground scene to that of mainstream acknowledgement that we know today.
