Description


 Queer women of color have historically been underrepresented or excluded completely in fiction and comics. When present, they are depicted as less than the white, Eurocentric norm. Drawing on semiotics, queer theory, and gender studies, this book addresses the imbalanced representation of queer women of color in graphic narratives and fiction and explores ways of rewriting queer women of color back into the frame. The author interrogates what it means to be Other and how Othering can be more creatively resisted.
