Panels from Safer Sex Comix and Alex et la vie d’apres

Homogeneity in Gay educational comics: Continuing a month of shows about gay and lesbian comics, Panel Borders presents a lecture by post doctoral researcher Doctor Jordana Greenblatt on the similarity in content of gay comics about safe practices and HIV, concentrating on Safer Sex Comix (by Alexander and Gregg, publ. 1987 by Gay Men’s Health Crisis of New York) and Alex et la vie d’apres (by Thierry Robberecht and Fabrice Neaud, publ. 2008 by Ex Aequo), recorded at “Ethics under cover – the 4th international Conference on Comics and Medicine”, Brighton and Sussex Medical School. Jordana discusses the similarity of sexual expression found in graphic narratives published 20 years apart – one designed as an educational pamphlet and the other a modern graphic novella based on the experiences of young gay men in Belgium – and talks to Alex Fitch about how the talk fits into her ongoing research and interests.

SUNDAY SHOCK THERAPY
SUNDAY 7 DECEMBER, Vibe Live, 2-6pm, FREE: To celebrate the publication of the winter issue of Electric Sheep we’ll be screening a double bill of outrageous Icelandic horror movies, the comic book-style vampire comedy Frostbite (2006) and the classic 50s monster movie Terror in the Midnight Sun (1959). For all those desperate to find eccentric, bizarre, funny, enchanting, beautiful and non-mass-produced Christmas presents, we’ll also have an alternative mini-Christmas market with a film books and DVDs stall from Cinéphilia, London Underground Comics, Where It’s At Is Where You Are records, Sophistikitten retro lingerie, and cakes!
The first 20 people in get a free copy of the new issue of Electric Sheep! You will also have the possibility of winning a year’s subscription to the magazine!
