Writer Anthony Oliveira: Stevonnie, Satan and other queer icons. Listen on Demand.

“Kids have stopped being kids in the time you’ve made them wait for queer representation… “We won’t metaphorize these things away.”–

Anthony Oliveira is a writer, film programmer, pop culture critic, and PhD living in Toronto.

He’s written comics for Dark Horse, BOOM! Studios’ Steven Universe: Fusion Frenzy, and for Marvel “My Drag Brunch with Loki” in War of the Realms: War Scrolls.

He tweets @meakoopa and hosts the podcast The Devil’s Party, as he reads through Milton’s Paradise Lost and its demonic twists and turns.
