SOLRAD + SPX: Communicating Queer Identity Through Fictional Structures

This weekend as a part of Virtual SPX 2020, I moderated two panels. The first was the second live version of our monthly podcast ENEMIES OF THE STATE, and the second was this one, “Communicating Queer Identity Through Fictional Structures.” I had the privilege to talk with three talented cartoonists – Lawrence Lindell, Trung Lê Nguyễn, and Kelsey Wroten (listed in clockwise order starting from the top left of the video below).

SOLRAD is planning an initial series of panels similar to this one, so keep your eyes peeled for new video content. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed moderating it!

SOLRAD is made possible by the generous donations of readers like you. Support our Patreon campaign, or make a tax-deductible donation to our publisher, Fieldmouse Press, today.
