EVENT: 100 Crushes Book Launch

(Hey Beguilingers! This isn’t ‘our’ event, but we strongly recommend it, the book 100 Crushes, and publisher Koyama Press, as being worth your time & money, go check it out!)

100 Crushes Book Launch in Conjunction with Generations of Queer Exhibit

Koyama Press is pleased to announce that on 15 June 2014 from 2 to 5PM Elisha Lim will be launching their debut graphic memoir 100 Crushes at Onsite [at] OCAD U in conjunction with their exhibition Generations of Queer.

Toronto-based artist Lim’s work celebrates the dignity and power of being neither straight, nor white, nor cis-gendered. In 2011 they also successfully advocated for Canadian gay media to adopt the gender neutral pronoun “they.” 100 Crushes compiles five years of queer comics by Lim, including excerpts from Sissy, The Illustrated Gentleman, Queer Child in the Eighties, and their cult series 100 Butches, as well as new work. It’s an absorbing documentary that travels through Toronto, Berlin, Singapore, and beyond in the form of interviews, memoirs, and gossip from an international queer vanguard.

Lim’s work is included in OCAD U’s Generations of Queer exhibition which presents vital and compelling narratives through the works of four Toronto-based artists. Influenced by age, background, current context and health, each of these artists has different stories to tell.

Join us for an afternoon of art, readings and community as we celebrate the launch of this groundbreaking book.
