LBGTQ+ MEET-UP: Comics & More!

*Allies & Mature Teens Welcome*

 

Join us in sharing and learning about comics & pop-culture,
with a focus on
gay and transgender communities.

We are a place for nerdy people to speak freely and without judgment. Good intentions are always assumed, and empathetic understanding is readily offered.
It is likely that we will discuss some topics that may be uncomfortable, so we encourage everyone to be mindful of themselves and their well-being.
Please review the Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up at the bottom of this post.

 

ALL WELCOME, JUST BE NICE!!

 

Next Meet-Ups:  April 29th, May 27th, June 24th, July 22nd

YOUNG AVENGERS BY GILLEN AND MCKELVIE, Vols 1-3
YOUNG AVENGERS (2013) #1-15 , Marvel Comics

The Young Avengers are reinvented for the 21st century as Wiccan, Hulkling and Kate “Hawkeye” Bishop unite with Kid Loki, Marvel Boy, Prodigy and Ms. America. Someone has to save the entire multiverse. They’re someone. No pressure, right?
As a cosmic horror emerges from the shadows of the past, the Young Avengers race desperately across dimensions – but once they take on the gig to save reality, they may never be able to go home again! Meanwhile, Kid Loki is up to something. Surprise, I know.
Fight scenes! Kissing! Fake IDs! Kissing! Drama! Conflict! Plentiful feels!

 Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up

  • Confidentiality!  Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s oK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
  • Find the Positive  It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
  • Ouch/Oops  If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
    acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
  • You Speak for Yourself  We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
  • Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
  • Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation  It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
  • Yield the Floor  Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
