Elizabeth Beier is a lady just who understands your lez existence. She is besides existed it herself, she actually is pulled it out too. Over the past few years she is spent countless evenings from the notorious sipping spot, The Lex. she actually is penned down almost any encounter we have now had here, completely. From the one which moved far too far towards downright depressing, their cartoons just feel close to residence but fairly they much summarize every little thing The Lex has stood for over these past few decades. She’s going to be showing her comic pieces at goal Comics in May, however in the meanwhile, we asked the lady slightly about her task and where you are able to discover much more.



Q. just what made you intend to place pen to report for the Lex cartoons?




A.

The need to wow females, obviously. Well, honestly — I began attracting ladies at Lexington Club in an effort to introduce my self, in a manner that had been more original than providing them a drink or eagerly singing along on the jukebox’s Pat Benatar. We began gathering the drawings and thinking about it a lot more as a “project” while I heard the club was actually shutting.



Q. What currently a number of a best memories from Lex?






A.

On Halloween of 2014 we conducted court at my favorite place during the club and drew gigay orgeous folks in costume outfit, whom subsequently purchased me beverages. A lovely lady (or perhaps — individual who isn’t a cis guy) passed myself a card having said that “you’re screwing amazing. Hold that shit up” and was presented with. I went into the woman again back at my solution to capture the BART and experienced the first kiss since my personal Major break-up that felt enjoyable and beautiful. Very — that has been good night.
