September 22 @ 1:00 pm
Fanfiction is a work of fiction based on characters originating in another work. In “Re-Queering Fanfiction,” readers will select a range of fanfiction that involves fictional characters, real people (RPF), and stories that started as fanfiction before being published. They can reclaim these characters and transform them into tools to experiment and voice differing ideas on gender and sexuality. Fanfiction can be a powerful tool for young LGBT writers and readers to explore their emerging identities. The transformative aspect of fanfiction can be bizarre, hilarious, and empowering.
