Cartoonist Studio Prize Winners: The Academic Hour by Keren Katz and Leaving Richard’s Valley by Michael DeForge
Sasha Velour (’13) is the most recent winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, season 9! And we all send her the biggest congratulations! Her thesis project back in 2013, Stonewall, is a graphic novel about the 1969 Stonewall Riots.
On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York, and the patrons and other sympathizer rioted in a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations. Considered a turning in the history of LGBT rights, Sasha uses multiple protagonists in a variety of historical styles to navigate the complicated and elusive story.
