Sofie talks to cartoonist, creator of ‘The Bechdel Test’ and author of Fun Home Alison Bechdel about writing an auto-biographical book that turned into a play, letting other people take creative control, dealing with her father&aposs suicide, being gay, the different concerns that come with getting older, being followed by a coming-of-age story when definitely of age, finding a young queer audience, The Bechdel Test in a changing cultural stew, identity, family secrets, how drawing memories can change the way you remember them and a meditation on mortality.
