A featured guest speaker is Prism Award winner The Kao, whose award-winning story, Magical Boy, is a breathtakingly imaginative fantasy series starring Max a trans man in high school.

"I'm so excited to be participating in the Queer Comics Expo this year!" says creator The Kao. "It was such an honor to win the Prism Award for Magical Boy last year, and I can't wait to share more about the journey in creating Magical Boy to hopefully inspire many others."
