LGBTQ Event of the Week: A Hero Like Me

Plus other awesome events worthy of your attendance.

“A Hero Like Me” is this Saturday, July 29th.

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.
