About Queer Comics Expo
QCE is an annual event to celebrate queer culture and promote diverse queer representation in comics, animation and other great ways to tell stories. QCE is a fundraiser for the Cartoon Art Museum, a 501©(3) educational non-profit.

About the Cartoon Art Museum
The Cartoon Art Museum’s key function is to preserve, document, and exhibit this unique and accessible art form. Through traveling exhibitions and other exhibit-related activities—such as cartoonists-in-residence, lectures, and outreach—the museum has taken cartoon art and used it to communicate cultural diversity in the community, as well as the importance of self-expression.
