Diversity and Fandom 102: How You Can Make a Difference

Sunday, July 24
10:00am - 11:00am
Room 24ABC

In the wake of campaigns like Racebending.com's protests and the rise of safe spaces like Racialicious.com, fans, consumers and creators from underrepresented groups have more outlets for speaking up. This panel explores how those voices can be added to conversations with geeky business interests and fan communities.

Actor Dante Basco (Avatar: The Last Airbender), showrunner/writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman), author Malinda Lo (Huntress), Arturo Garcia (Racialicious.com), Phil Yu (AngryAsianMan.com) and USC Professor Henry Jenkins (CivicPaths Project) promise a lively discussion, moderated by Racebending.com!
We're currently collecting questions for the discussion, so if you'd like to submit one, leave it in the comments at Racebending.com. For more information about the panel, check out Racialicious' post here and the Facebook event page here. If you stop by the panel, please say hello. And I'll see you at Geek Thanksgiving!
