Episode 157: It’s everyone’s problem featuring Mário César

Last updated on June 10, 2023

Mário César joins us to discuss his comics career, including his incredible graphic novel and webcomic Blessed Cure. We discuss where the comic came from, fighting against anti-LGBTQ+ hate, creating community, and healing and loving your queer self in a world that doesn’t want you to. We also talk about the conference he started, Poc CON, being a Brazilian artist, and so much more! Co-hosted by special guest host Craig Hale, this episode is our second Pride Month Extravaganza interview for 2023!

Trigger warnings: Please be aware that this episode is filled with discussions of homophobia, discrimination, conversion therapy, anti-queer legislation. Starts around 17:30 and continues through the end
