No Straight Lines tells the story of five scrappy and pioneering cartoonists who depicted everything from the AIDS crisis, coming out, and same-sex marriage to themes of race, gender, and disability. They tackled the humor in queer lives in a changing world and the everyday pursuits of love, sex, and community. Beginning at a time in which there was no other genuine queer storytelling in popular culture, their work is funny, smart, and profound, and provides a unique, uncensored window into LGBTQ+ lives from the 1970s onward. Equally engaging are their personal journeys, as against all odds, they helped build a queer comics underground that has been able to grow and evolve in remarkable ways.
