Director: Vivian Kleiman Cast: Alison Bechdel, Jennifer Camper, and Howard Cruse, NR. Grand Jury Award for Outstanding Documentary Feature at L.A. Outfest

A lively look at five LGBTQ+ comic book artists whose careers go from the underground scene to the cover of Time Magazine and the international stage. These scrappy and pioneering cartoonists depicted everything from the AIDS crisis, coming out, and same-sex marriage, to themes of race, gender, and disability. They tackled the humor in queer lives in a changing world, and the everyday pursuits of love, sex, and community. A unique, uncensored window into LGBTQ lives from the 1970s onward, beginning at a time in which there was no other genuine queer storytelling in popular culture. “An entertaining and enlightening documentary… “Traces the evolution of comics as a social movement, and artistic expression as a vital channel of sexuality” —David Morgan, CBS News
