Listen to the Recording of ‘Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Cosplay and Fandom’

Dragon Con LogoWe had an amazing turnout at the “Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Cosplay and Fandom” panel at Dragon Con. It was only scheduled for an hour but since we had such an awesome and engaged audience we ended up keeping the panel going for over three hours.

If you weren’t able to make it to the panel, you can now check out the audio recording!

Thank you to everyone who came out to make it the highest attended panel at this year’s Comics & Popular Arts Conference. It was truly exhilarating to be able to talk to so many intelligent people passionate about the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality in comics, cosplay, and geek culture.

    Marvellous recording. There is no doubt that a lot of comics propagate the ‘male gaze.’ I often wonder if we could have a truly physically reprehensible female character like say… Rorshach is in Watchmen, a have become a moral lead of a comic. I wonder if she has to wear a bikini or a revealing out fit to be accepted as a comic book force. It is very sad if this is true.

    Check out discussion of Female Heroines and much much more a The Extremis Review t
