Welcome to Pride Month in PREVIEWS
Jun 02, 2022
Every June, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual communities recognize Pride Month in memory of the victims of the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. This annual celebration hails LGBTQ+ civil rights victories, commemorates sacrifices made by LGBTQ+ members and their allies, and acknowledges the distances yet ahead for global equality for all persons under law.
Retailers and readers of all stripes may recognize Pride Month for the proliferation of Pride parades across the globe, which invite all attendees to come as they are and to feel a joyful sense of belonging.
It is in this same spirit of welcoming togetherness that PREVIEWS is proud to highlight a wide array of comics stories both about and from our siblings in the LGBTQ+ communities, available to order now at your local comic shop.

No Straight Lines showcases major names such as Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, and Ralf KÖnig (one of Europe's most popular cartoonists), as well as high-profile, crossover creators who have dabbled in LGBT cartooning, like legendary NYC artist David Wojnarowicz and media darling and advice columnist Dan Savage. No Straight Lines also spotlights many talented creators who never made it out of the queer comics ghetto, but produced amazing work that deserves wider attention.
Queer cartooning encompasses some of the best and most interesting comics of the last four decades, with creators tackling complex issues of identity and a changing society with intelligence, humor, and imagination. This book celebrates this vibrant artistic underground by gathering together a collection of excellent stories that can be enjoyed by all.
Until recently, queer cartooning existed in a parallel universe to the rest of comics, appearing only in gay newspapers and gay bookstores and not in comic book stores, mainstream bookstores or newspapers. The insular nature of the world of queer cartooning, however, created a fascinating artistic scene. LGBT comics have been an uncensored, internal conversation within the queer community, and thus provide a unique window into the hopes, fears, and fantasies of queer people for the last four decades.
These comics have forged their aesthetics from the influences of underground comix, gay erotic art, punk zines, and the biting commentaries of drag queens, bull dykes, and other marginalized queers. They have analyzed their own communities, and their relationship with the broader society. They are smart, funny, and profound. No Straight Lines has been heralded by people interested in comics history, and people invested in LGBT culture will embrace it as a unique and invaluable collection.
