I gave this speech at Roanoke’s No Shame Theatre in the midst of a complicated relationship, wearing that gown.
Sadly, Friends of Lulu is now disbanded. Only Wikipedia attests that it was ever there and that I ever won this award. So sad. The end of an era.
I wish I could have made it to San Diego for this one since the awards were going to be presented by one of my Women in Comics idols, Jennifer de Guzman, editor at Slave Labor Graphics.
