SUNDAY 1:00 PM

Ignorance and Fandom
Pecan until 1:45 PM

Presented by:
Jen Wang; Pablo Miguel Alberto Vazquez; Tori Brand; Joshua Bouton; Caitlin Katz

This panel will cover serious issues such as racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia in various fandoms. Whether it's racist stereotypes being perpetuated through steampunk, female cosplayers being accused of being ''fake geek girls'', or the lack of LGBT characters in sci-fi and fantasy, these are big problems that cannot be ignored. This panel will also address harassment and rape at conventions and threats of violence on-line. We encourage people of all ages to be aware of these issues, but we will not hold back in our discussions so this is not a panel for those who will be uncomfortable with hot topics.
