Based on the extraordinary stories of five queer comic book artists who eventually achieved worldwide fame, NO STRAIGHT LINES reveals a celebratory arc from which queer comics emerged from a parallel universe, appearing only in gay newspapers and gay bookstores, to create a fascinating window into everything from the AIDS crisis and workplace discrimination, to the search for love and a good haircut. Their work and personal stories are sure to make you laugh – but also make you think about the challenges and triumphs encountered and overcome along the way.
