You know the drill—three themes, lots of great sources!
First up, virtually explore the exhibition titled “Sequential Self: Female, Non-Binary, Trans, and Queer Voices in Comics and Zines”
Want to find and support more LGBTQA+ comic artists like the ones included in this exhibition? Check out the Queer Cartoonists website!
The ABO Comix website supports incarcerated LGBTQA+ cartoonists—check them out and the work they do to empower the cartoonists they work with!
Second up, delve into some LGBTQA+ history by checking out the UWM archives. Their “LGBT Collections” contains multiple amazing resources for local Milwaukee history, including oral histories. There is also a really cool Stonewall Forever living monument which is a virtual experience containing an archive of multimedia resources about the Stonewall Riots that you can check out.
Finally, here are some art-related resources for Pride month!
Check out the work of the Madison-based TransLiberation Art Coalition
Visit the website for Diasporan Avant Press which, according to their website, “is an incubator project for print works exploring marginalized members of the African diaspora with an emphasis on intersectional & multidisciplinary printmaking works (digital, screenprint/silkscreen, gocco, block print, monoprint), art books, zines, textile art, and more”
This online exhibition features a “cross-section of queer artists of color who leverage portraiture photography to explore identity beyond visibility” (from the website).
Check out some original plays in the African American Collective Theater’s series titled “Out & About“
