Anyone who self-identifies within the spectrum Queer is welcome to join this workshop.
In this workshop we aim to build a safer space of discussion and creation where you will learn about Queer comic artists feel inspired to tell your own story. What stories would you like to put into drawings? From queer families adventures to Super Queer heroes, everyday stories of your pet and visual descriptions of historical struggles, we are looking forward to listening and reading more Queer stories! Bring them, put them onto paper and take your comic home!

In this workshop you will learn:
- build a story and create a storyboard for comics
- create and visually develop your characters
- sketch, frame and ink your drawings
- lay-out, lettering and printing tips.

Your comic instructor, Coco Guzman has been making comics since they were 6. Other than having self-published more than a dozen of queer zines, Coco is the author of Llueven Queers, the first queer graphic novel in Spanish and has been the in-house cartoonist for Shameless magazine since 2013. Their work has been shown internationally and their illustrations have been published in a diversity of publications, from friends' magazines to Oxford University Press.
