TransOhio along with Equality Ohio, The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland and the Inferno nightclub have come together to sponsor an exciting event on July 16th at the University of Akron.

A lecture on erotic art and transgender issues will be given at 7:00, the focus being on her work and her creation, MARA, a highly unusual and personal erotic comic.
The exhibit will show hundreds of published illustrations. As part of the show Justine will be showing art and illustration from many of her influences, including original art from the Simpsons, Bambi, Berni Wrightson, the trail-blazing trans artist Jeffrey Jones, and many other famous and influential fantasy and comic book artists.
This show is not only of interest to members of the LGBT community, but also to anyone who has any interest in comics, fantasy, gaming, and illustration.
Please join TransOhio, Equality Ohio, The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland and the Inferno nightclub for a wonderful night of art and expression. An after party will be held at the Inferno nightclub on Arlington Road.
Due to the adult nature of the art no one under the age of 18 will be allowed entrance to the event.
