Utah Pride is coming up next weekend, starting Friday June 1! The Utah Pride parade and celebration is one of the largest in Utah and this will be the first year Salt Lake City Public Library will be walking in it! So for the next week we’ll be posting a short series of GLBT related AWESOMENESS, including info on a number of GLBT comics and zines that we have in our own collection.
First up, Marvel Comics has announced the marriage of Northstar! The marriage takes place in Astonishing X-Men #51 which will be released June 22! This comes shortly after President Obama announced his support for gay marriage! Northstar was the first GLBT character to come out of the closet and its good to hear the news especially after the abuse his character has received from writers over the years (they’ve gone as far as having him murdered by Wolverine in Age of Apocalypse! I’ll never forgive him!).
