There are more LGBT characters in mainstream comics, independents, Yaoi, and Yuri than ever before. Some comics push for truer portrayals of all people in the LGBT community and others push for shock and awe. How do you balance portrayals of LGBT characters in today's comics market? Prism Comics (the nonprofit organization promoting awareness of LGBT comics, creators, and fans), Brian Andersen (So Super Duper), Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Torso), Tara Madison Avery (Gooch), Agnes Czaja (Acrobats), Jim McCann (Mind the Gap, Return of the Dapper Men), Bob Schreck (Legendary Comics), and other creators explore what makes a strong, realistic depiction of an LGBT character, what makes or breaks an edgy depiction of an LGBT character, and what is going too far. Moderated by Charles "Zan" Christensen (publisher, Northwest Press, Mark of Aeacus).
