IDW And The Nib Celebrate Queer History In New Anthology ‘Be Gay, Do Comics’

by Olly MacNamee

IDW are teaming up with The Nib – the daily online publication devoted to promoting political and non-fiction comics founded by Pulitzer Prize finalist Matt Bor – for a new graphic novel anthology of over 250 pages of queer history presented through deeply personal and true stories.
“Brimming with resilience, inspiration, and humor, Be Gay, Do Comics takes readers from the American Revolution through Stonewall to today’s fights for equality and representation in tales written and illustrated by an incredible lineup of top indie cartoonists.
Within the pages of this massive queer comics anthology, readers will discover: the dream of a queer separatist town; the life of a gay and Jewish Nazi-fighter; an examination of local civil rights laws in Puerto Rico; a gender reveal party that tears apart reality; a touching tribute to rainbow flag pioneer Gilbert Baker; and much more.”
Creators who have contributed strips for this new book include Hazel Newlevant, Joey Alison Sayers, Maia Kobabe, Matt Lubchansky, Breena Nuñez, Sasha Velour, Shing Yin Khor, Levi Hastings, Mady G, Josh Trujillo, Bianca Xunise, Kazimir Lee and more and coming out September 1st.
