Pittsburgh, PA June 2, 2013- Exploring the homoerotic subtext of the superhero culture at the Pittsburgh GLCC.
The GLCC is showcasing the artwork of local and international artists in the comic book genre. If you grew up with comics and graphic novels, you may have noticed: The incredible bodies in flamboyant and skin-tight outfits. The leading of double lives. The intense male/ male relationships. The strange, unusual and even “unnatural” powers. Maybe it was the lack of positive gay role models in the mainstream culture or maybe all superheroes ARE kinda gay.
Things have progressed a bit from Northstar to Batwoman to a gay wedding in Archie. This show is meant to explore and celebrate all the hints, the winks & nods and the glorious camp that occurred over time.
- Show opens Sunday, June 2nd 6-9pm. Free admission, Free drinks & snacks, Free parking downtown. Wear a cape.
Exhibition runs from: Sunday June 2nd to Sept. 25th.
Gallery Opening: Show opens Sunday, June 2nd 6-9pm.
Pittsburgh Gay & Lesbian Community Center provides the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) individuals, their families and supporters in Western Pennsylvania with resources and opportunities to promote visibility, understanding and equality within the LGBT communities and the community-at-large. The GLCC will work toward these goals through education, social support, networking and advocacy.
