Gengoroh Tagame - My Brother's Husband, Volume 2 — presented with Anne Ishii — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Tagame is one of Japan’s most influential gay manga artists and was one of the first to come out. He won the prestigious Japan Media Arts Award for Outstanding Work of Manga and a 2018 Eisner Award for the opening volume of My Brother’s Husband. In this break-out work, he introduced Yaichi, his daughter Kana, and Mike, the widowed Canadian husband of Yaichi’s late twin brother, Ryoji. While Kana and her mother immediately took to Mike, Yaichi, like Japan, was slower to shake his homophobia. In this sequel, Yaichi is still wary, but slowly grows closer to his brother-in-law as the two men trade memories of the different Ryojis they knew. Tagame will be presenting with his translator Anne Ishii, executive director of Asian Arts Initiative.
