Geekdom in the Fiefdom

September 29, 2018
11:00 am—12:15 pm

Japanese American Cultural & Community Center get directions

Moderated by: Sam Maggs

Henry Lien and Baruch Porras Hernandez

No matter what genre you write words for — fantasy, science fiction, romance, horror — queer people are a part of the fandom. But, queer genre geeks often have to wait patiently for their favorite genres to diversify and make room for explicit queer stories. In this session, writers who work within different genres and in different media will have a cross-genre discussion about how they carved a space for queerness in their respective fields and what it means to remind fandoms that queer people exist and have romantic, strange, frightening and fantastical stories to tell.
