Thursday 21 February, 19:30pm
Bristol Central Library, College Green
An illustrated talk by historian Robert Howes about the development of cartoons representing homosexuals, from the early 19th century to the present. Taking examples from Britain and other countries, the talk will show how images of homosexuality and LGBT people have been constructed through cartoons and caricatures. Starting with depictions of scandal by a usually hostile press, the talk will go on to show how LGBT cartoonists have used the medium to comment on the everyday incidents of domestic life.
Free event: no booking required, but donations to OutStories Bristol project gratefully received.
