Queering Your Fiction: Writing LGBTQ+ Characters Into Your Stories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Have you wanted to diversify the gender identities or sexualities of the people who live in your fictional worlds? Are you struggling with the diversity you have already begun to implement? Are you wondering if the representation you see in current media (novels, television, movies, that anime you won't admit you loved *coughGravitationcough*) is accurate or respectful? This panel's aim is to discuss and answer questions about LGBTQ+ representation, and how to do it in your own work.

I am a retail employee, parent and make a hobby of my art and writing. I love to talk about the craft! I am also queer: genderqueer and also just generally queer.
