Organizer: Drawn & Quarterly

Come meet Eloisa Aquino and learn about the history behind the zine series, The Life and Times of Butch Dykes. There will be a short talk followed by a Q&A session.

THE LIFE & TIMES OF BUTCH DYKES is a compilation of zines published by Eloisa over the past decade. With drawings, stories, and quotations showing the great contributions as well as little, human details about their lives, it’s perfect for people of all genders seeking role models or to learn or teach history through its unsung heroes.

ELOISA AQUINO is a Brazilian-Canadian artist and zinester who lives and works in Montreal, where she runs the micro-press B&D Press. She was born in São Paulo (Brazil), where she made zines and worked as a journalist and translator, and moved to Montreal in order to pursue a Master’s in Media Studies. Eloisa’s work is focused in non-fictional illustrated narratives on queer topics, especially stories and histories at the margins.
