LGBTQ Subtext in Comics, Sci-Fi and Fantasy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

UPDATED: Fri, Mar 22, 03:12PM
LGBTQ subtext has almost always existed in comics, films and TV shows-from Dr. Wertham's writings on Batman and Robin to audiences' musings on Star Wars, Xena, Buffy, Doctor Who and the current Once Upon A Time TV show. "Wink-wink, nudge-nudge" asides, glances and dialogue still get fans talking and slash fictioners "slashing." Subtext is a legitimate literary and artistic device. But now with the greater prominence and acceptance of LGBTQ characters in media, subtext has even more opportunity to become "maintext." Will subtext ever come out of the closet? Will the prince ever get the prince-or the princess her princess? How often is subtext in the mind of the beholder? Join Prism Comics and Marc Andreyko (Black Lightning and Blue Devil, Manhunter), Brad Bell (Husbands), Jane Espenson (Buffy, Once Upon A Time, Husbands), Wendy Pini (Elfquest, Masque of the Red Death) Sean-Z (Myth, Bent-Con), and moderator Jody Wheeler (DoorQ, Bent-Con), as they explore how creators and audiences balance queer subtext.
