BINGO LOVE ogn IMAGE COMICS
(W) Tee Franklin (A) Jenn St-Onge (CA) Genevieve Ft
When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men
and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari
reunite again at a church bingo hall.
Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.
From TEE FRANKLIN (NAILBITER’s “THE OUTFIT,” Love is Love)
and JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits), BINGO LOVE is a touching story of love,
family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.
“A towering emotional achievement. BINGO LOVE is the graphic novel I didn’t know I couldn’t live without.” -GAIL SIMONE
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.
