PHEW! It took me ages and it’s not perfect, but here is the recording of my Queering Up Comics talk I gave at Yale University earlier this month!

To see all the comics I read in my talk, please see my blog post

I remember being so completely heartbroken by the comic Erika wrote about being hassled for falling in love with Matt and including it in her comics. Me and my partner seriously cried. I really value the breadth of what queer can encompass, and the huge range of words and experiences and desires that it includes. Queer, to me, is never an exclusive term - it’s a big messy, fantastic, all-inclusive ever-evolving fluid mess… oh, wait, I said mess already.
