LGBTQ Cartoonists and Comics Conference – Queers & Comics features two days of discussion panels, workshops, readings, and comics galore, along with a multitude of off-site events.

Queer and Comics 2017

Queers & Comics is the first-ever university-based LGBTQ comics conference. Queer comics offer readers a unique visual literature that reflects and critiques queer culture. The Queers & Comics Conference brings US and international LGBTQ cartoonists, comics writers, and artists together with scholars and fans in order to document the history and significance of queer comics.

The conference format allows participants an opportunity to document the history and significance of LGBTQ comics, discuss the craft of cartooning, and promote queer creators in the comics industry in an intellectual and education capacity, and provides queer cartoonists a unique environment to learn from each other and to inspire exciting future work.

The first Queers & Comics Conference was created and organized by cartoonist Jennifer Camper – assisted greatly by andré carrington (CLAGS Board Member), the CLAGS staff, Prism Comics, and many volunteers.

The inaugural Queers & Comics Conference was presented on May 7-8, 2015 by CLAGS (Center for LGBTQ Studies) at The Graduate Center, CUNY, in New York City and hosted renowned keynotes Howard Cruse (Stuck Rubber Baby, Gay Comics) and Alison Bechdel (Dykes to Watch Out For, Fun Home).

The profound success of the first Queers & Comics Conference demonstrates the need for future conferences. Presenting the conference in different geographic locations provides more cartoonists and scholars an opportunity to attend. The San Francisco Bay Area has a long cartooning history, active comics and scholarly communities, and a vibrant LGBTQ population.

California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA, is thrilled to host the 2nd biennial Queers & Comics Conference in April 2017.


Gay Pride or LGBT Pride is the celebration of who we are.  Pride allows us to take a stand against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and to promote self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increased visibility, build community while we celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Hog Wild – Official Opening Party of Up Your Alley

Hog Wild Up Your Alley

For men of a certain mindset, we’re throwing an old school kind of leather party. It’s dark, it’s devious, and it’s dangerous. The music is pumping, throbbing, hot and raw. If you miss the heyday of leather, we’re bringing it back for you with guys in head-to-toe leather and uniforms. Get in gear and get off your phone, or stay home.

Dancers will get loose and sweaty, and they’ll work you up into a feverish frenzy. Tip our sexy fuckin’ go-go sluts and see what they give you back. Sway to the pulsating beats to of DJs Robot Hustle (Bézier/Honey Soundsystem) and Josh Cheon (Dark Entries Records/Bézier/Honey Soundsystem) all night long – or, at least until the lights come on and you’re cruising on the sidewalk.

This is a special event to celebrate the XXX anniversary of Up Your Alley. $10 for men in gear; $15 for men in street clothes. No tickets are sold in advance, just show up at the door for first come, first served entry. Let’s make this night legendary.

Produced by Folsom Street Events in association with SF Eagle. Keep checking this page for more information. Net proceeds from the door benefit Folsom Street Events and its charities.
