No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics Debuts this Weekend
No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics is a look at five LGBTQ+ comic book artists who have risen from underground comics to the international stage.
No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics adapts Justin Hall‘s anthology and shares the stories of Alison Bechdel, Jennifer Camper, Howard Cruse, Rupert Kinnard, and Mary Wings. They talk about everything from the AIDS crisis and workplace discrimination to the search for love and a good haircut. The documentary also focuses on how changing times influenced their work.
Produced and directed by Vivian Kleiman, the documentary premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival.
For those who can’t make it or aren’t ready to enter the public, the film will be available to be streamed starting June 13 and will be available until June 23 on demand. The streaming costs $15.
