Presented in partnership with QCinema

Compadre Media Group presents No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics, a film by Vivian Kleiman 

The road for queer comics from the margins of the underground comics scene to mainstream acceptance is fraught with challenges. No Straight Lines chronicles the journeys of five scrappy LGBTQ artists—Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, Mary Wings, Rupert Kinnard, and Jennifer Camper—from their early DIY work to the international stage, and offers a fascinating window into everything from the AIDS crisis to the search for love and a good haircut. (This film is not yet rated, 78 min.)

Winner of the Documentary Feature Grand Jury Prize Outfest Los Angeles 2022, and Official selection of Tribeca Film Festival 2021 Sheffield Doc/Fest 2021, AFI DOCS 2021, and Frameline LGBTQ+ Film Festival 2021 

Space is limited. 

This film is part of Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art.
