New Exhibit – Comics Fighting: An Underground War for LGBTQ Visibility

Comics Fighting: An Underground War for LGBTQ Visibility” was designed by Robert T. Smith, a student in UCF’s Department History, during his internship with the GLBT Museum of Central Florida. The exhibit centers on the use of story-telling through comics to expand visibility for the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, and others) Movement by diversifying the perception of the people in the community, emphasizing political issues that affected the community, and by integrating prevalent social issues into main stream media outlets.
