Excited to be attending and presenting at the Queers & Comics Conference 2017 at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco! I will be moderating the panel on bisexuality/ fluid sexuality (exact time coming soon), and co-curating a "Queer Comics Live!" reading with the inimitable Ajuan Mance on Sunday, April 16, Noon - 2pm.
Come for a panel with me and other underground artists at the California College of the Arts on April 10th, 2016!
Excited to join Wondercon 2017 with Prism Comics in Anaheim CA! At the Queers, Comics & Social Justice panel (exact time coming soon), I will name the next recipient of the Queer Press Grant after a lively discussion and Q&A with some great cartoonists. The rest of the weekend I'll be at the Prism booth, so please stop by :)
Please join us on Friday September 2nd at 6pm for the opening reception of 19th & Lexington - an art show and film screening curated by Lauren Tabak and Susie Smith in partnership with Qulture Collective. Ace Morgan,Molly DeCoudreaux, Cody Prebys-Williams, Elizabeth Beier and Rebeka Rodriguez will also be showing work that spans the Lexington Club's 18 year history. Show runs 9/2/16 - 10/8/16.
Come for a reading by local queer cartoonists who are featured in the Alphabet comic anthology! Readers include Eight Rock, Elizabeth Beier, Scout Tran-Caffee, Tyler Cohen, Diego Gomez, Robyn Adams, Ahri Almeida, Emeric L Kennard, Maia Kobabe, and Dorian Katz. After the reading, you can buy a book and get it signed! This will be a fun LGBTQ cultural event -- queers, allies, artists, and comic lovers are all welcome.
Come for a night of saucy storytelling! Hosted by Dixie de la Tour at Verdi Club. I will be presenting along with several other cool people.
As part of Litquake, I will be presenting some of my Lex comics at the SF Public Library during a reading series with RADAR Productions. RADAR was founded in 2003 by Michelle Tea and conducts presenting, commissioning, publishing, professional development and touring programs that stimulate the production of queer and underground literature in San Francisco.
I will be collaborating with debt activist Cassie Thorton to produce a show about a more well-rounded, humanistic approach to credit reports. Will feature drawings and stories about real people (with distinguishing characteristics changed) who may have low credit "scores", but fantastic lives and narratives, who we would absolutely want to be able to find a home in the Bay Area.
Come for a comics reading featuring cartoonists Swaz Soizick Jaffre,Elizabeth Beier, Ellis Kim and Jon Macy. Ellis Kim teaches classes on comics and will be starting the night off with excerpts from his series Time Fiddler, in which badass women travel in time. Soizick is joining us all the way from the Paris area where she teaches English and draws comics known for their vivid colors. She, Elizabeth and Jon will likely read a preview from the upcoming LGBT comic anthology ALPHABET, which will be published by Stacked Decked Press and released at Wondercon 2016. They may also read other awesome comics they have made as they see fit.
We will project pictures onto a screen and read to you. It will be awesome.
The SF LGBT Center's Board of Directors invite you to kick-off the Pride Season at the Board Pride Party! Wednesday, June 10, from 6-9 pm.
Guests will be able to mingle with Center board members and supporters, take a tour of the Center, watch amazing belly dance performances, play interactive games, enjoy an open bar and hors d’oeuvres, and dance like everyone is watching!
Live Cartooning with Elizabeth Beier!!
Elizabeth Beier, a local cartoonist, can make a personalized portrait for you within ten minutes, and also capture your answer to the question of why the Center's work is important. You can keep the originals of the drawings, and she will also compile them to create a web comic about the work that still needs to be done to ensure LGBT health, justice and strength. Beier honed her skills in this kind of cartooning while drawing stories for her book We Belong: Stories and Portraits from the Lexington Club. See more about her at www.elizabethdrewyou.com.

Attention friends and fans of the Lexington Club: all that art I've been doing about the Lex, including paintings, comics, and interviews, will be coming together into a real book. At this event I'll present and read some of the comics from a projector, the book & some art will be available for purchase, and it we can all gather and reminisce.
I'm also reaching out to other local artists to take part! Direct message me if you are interested! Mars Adams will be bringing some one-of-a-kind Lex-themed hats -- SO excited about that. I want this to be a place for the community to come together!
For those who haven't been there yet, Mission: Comics & Art is just about a block away from the Lex and it's another amazing local small business -- thank you so much to Leef Smith for agreeing to host this event!
I'm going to speaking on the "Queer Memoir" panel at the Queers & Comics panel! I don't know the exact time of my panel yet but here is more info on the conference generally:
Queers & Comics is a conference in NYC from May 7-8, 2015 that "will celebrate, explore and analyze queer cartoonists and their work. It will offer LGBT cartoonists, comics writers and artists an opportunity to share information about their craft, to document the history and significance of queer comics, and to discuss how LGBT cartoonists navigate the comics industry."
