Tee Franklin, creator of Bingo Love, to speak at geekOUTucr


Tee Franklin, whose graphic novella Bingo Love will be published by Image Comics on Valentine's Day 2018, will speak at geekOUTucr, UC Riverside's free queer comic-con on Saturday, February 17, 2018. ASL interpretation is provided.

Tee Franklin is a Queer disabled Black woman who writes comics: The Outfit (Nailbiter #27), A Blazin' (in the Ignatz award winning Elements Anthology), Tears (in the Eisner-winning and New York Times Best Selling Love is Love), and the Queer romance graphic novella, Bingo Love.

Franklin won the 2017 Queer Press Grant for Bingo Love and raised almost $60k for this graphic novella via Kickstarter. Franklin created her own publishing company, Inclusive Press, in order to publish her own comics, as well as comics by other marginalized creators. Franklin fights for inclusion in comics, no matter the risks, as she hopes that the next generation of marginalized comic creators won't have to put up with what's been happening for the past 75+ years.
