Gay Students hang out at DC Comics

Gay High School students got an awesome treat this week. They got an inside look in DC Comics, hanging out with super artist and writer, Phil Jimenez.

Here's some info from the DC Comic blog:

A group of students and chaperones from the Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School for LGBTQ students in New York, came for a tour of the DC Comics' New York office as part of a "Break Out Day" event organized by the various LGBTQ organizations in each department of Time Warner. The students started with breakfast, sharing their stories and hearing about the positive experiences from some of DC's diverse staff.

We were joined by artist Phil Jimenez, who energetically encouraged those students interested in art and writing to practice, practice, practice. He also walked them through the creative process for an artist, armed with everything from comics he created in high school to pencils from his latest Vertigo project, FAIREST.
That's so neat. I hope the students enjoyed themselves, I'm jealous.
