Modern Queer Heroes Modern Queer Heroes

“Who are the queer heroes walking amongst us now or in recent times? A celebration of LGBTQ+ figures who have helped push forward culture and society a little more for the rest of us. A collaboration during the 2020 quarantine between 14 LGBTQ+ identified animators around the world, the structure is based on the old Surrealist drawing game Exquisite Corpse. Each animator nominated a hero then was given a different hero to animate, passing on their last frame to the next animator to form their first frame and so on.”
