public appearance : pride illustrated

At some point during the moving process, a rapid exchange of facebook messages and emails led to me being invited to a panel discussion as part of the (wow, huge) Pride Festival in London this year, called Pride Illustrated (you have to scroll down a bit). It's at 6.30pm at Foyles, 113-119, Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB next Wednesday 1st July.

Here's the spot about it, but for some reason Kate Charlesworth isn't mentioned. She's coming, as is the amazing Rachael House who I have not seen in too many years, and David Shenton whose comics I absolutely love -- so I'm sure to clam up/act like an absolute ninny. Oh, and Sina and Howard the badger and Paul Gravett (of course) is chairing.

PRIDE ILLUSTRATED - Wednesday 1st July

Illustrators, cartoonists, artists David Shenton, Sina Shamsavari, Rachael House, Howard Harrison, Jeremy Dennis (female) discuss the wonder of graphic literature and queer culture. Comic fan and expert, journalist, curator and broadcaster Paul Gravett chairs the discussion. David Shenton's work is currently on show at the Glasgow Musesum of Modern Art as part of sh(OUT). Sina's latest has recently been released in the UK: The Book of Boy Trouble Vol. 2 edited by Robert Kirby and David Kelly. Rachael House is included in the Us anthology ‘Spilling Over'. Howard Harrison produces work on www.cutebutsad.co.uk. Jeremy Dennis is getting married (Congratulations!) and is producing comics with the Whores of Mensa.

I was up front with them both about being female and about to marry a man, but in our brave new world, apparently having gender and sexuality identities that shift over time is less of a problem than it once was. Possibly. We'll have to see how the Q&A goes.

Needless to say, I'd love to have a few people who know who I am in the audience!
