Join cartoonists Maia Kobabe, Ajuan Mance, and Bishakh Som as they discuss how their work explores and celebrates marginalized identities and self-discovery. Kobabe’s autobiography, Gender Queer, is a 2020 ALA Alex Award winner and Stonewall-Israel Fishman Non-Fiction Award Honor Book. Mance, a professor of African American literature at Mills College, creates comics and zines including Gender Studies; The Little Book of Big, Black Bears; A Blues for Black Santa; and the 1001 Black Men series. Som’s new Aspara Engine is a collection of short stories exploring the idiosyncrasies of gender. The panel will be moderated by the Cartoon Art Museum’s program coordinator, Nina Taylor Kester.
