LGBTQ Event of the Week: A Hero Like Me
For its love of queer comics, this week’s LGBTQ event of the week is A Hero Like Me. Enjoy an afternoon that plans to “create space to discuss our favorite queer and minority characters in comics and video games with a discussion about representation.” Qunity, the new all-inclusive LGBTQ social club, will be hosting this event as they plan to highlight and discuss feminist- and POC-centered comics, such as Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Batwoman, and Echo. All interest levels are welcome, and the space has all-gender bathrooms, handicap-accessible bathrooms, and a wheelchair-accessible ramp at the entrance. The event kicks off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 29th, at Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse, located at 2578 Frankford Avenue. Free admission.
