NYU Pride Month Brings Two Comics Events!
posted October 21st, 2009
[Print-ready Version]

This month is Pride Month at New York University, and the Office of LGBT Student Services has some interesting queer comics events on the schedule: a queer manga panel and a discussion with artist Ivan Velez, Jr., who will discuss his series Tales from the Closet, and also lead an urban comics drawing workshop.

On Wednesday, October 21st from 6pm-7:30pm, queer manga artists, translators and aficionados, Erica Friedman, Mari Morimoto, Ivan Velez, Hiroki Otsuka, and June Kim will discuss the evolution and different significances of the Queer Manga genre. This panel will take place at 60 Washington Square South in room 802.

The following Wednesday from 4pm-5pm, graphic artist Ivan Velez will discuss his creation of the 10 chapter graphic novel Tales from the Closet, which depicts the struggle of eight LGBT high school students in Queens, NY in the late 1980s. Tales from the Closet was created at a time when there was no public discussion of support or services for LGBT youth. The event will focus on Velez's creation of the graphic novel, and around a discussion of how services for LGBT youth have changed since the series was created for the Hetrick-Martin Institute in 1987.

This discussion will be followed by an Urban Comics Drawing Workshop from 5:30pm-6:30pm, also led by Velez. Both events will take place at 60 Washington Square South in room 802.

All these events are free and open to the public, and are are sponsored by NYU's Pride Month. If you have questions about these events, contact Maggie Fay at mf1519@nyu.edu.
