Live at FlameCon

Bitches On Comics was so proud to present at FlameCon 2021! Stephanie Williams, Monika Estrella Negra, Sara Century, and S.E. Fleenor discussed queerness in the Wonder Woman mythos, from Diana to Etta Candy. We also discussed the role of the gender binary on Themiscyra and the future of this world and Nubia in particular.

Thank you to everyone who joined us! When a recording is available, we’ll share it here!
