Welcome to Bristol’s first Comic Art Festival that promotes and celebrates LGBTQA+ artists and writers.
LGBTQA+ themes in the past have usually been hidden from comic strips due to censorship and a perception that comics were for kids (and heaven forbid they should know about LGBTQ+ stories) However, there has always been a rich and vibrant underground scene for the community by the community. Now with more comic artists being able to produce and sell their work independently, LGBTQA+ characters and themes are making their way into the public eye.
Pride Comic Art Festival is giving LGBTQA+ artists, writers and creators centre stage to exhibit and sell their work and stories and for the general public to discover a world of talent and stories.
There will also be a number of talks and workshops throughout the day to help inspire and spur on your own creativity.
This event is FREE and open to all ages!
