We Are Back !!  Here is the LIVE audio of the latest Queer Geeks of Oz panel held last weekend June 28th at 3 pm on Stage 3 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre  Oz Comic Con 2015!

One of the BIG questions this year is ” How do we want to see queer characters portrayed in comics, games and films?” Another one was : “Queer comics in Australia..where are we? and How can you publish your own work?”  Finally an area to discuss in the future: ” Representation of Queer People of Colour…where are they in comics ? “
