Queer & POC industry insiders on critiquing the media they love (or don't). Where does the convo go when identities intersect? We tackle hard questions on whitewashing, queer-baiting & appropriation. Featuring geek media critic Mark Oshiro, author Karuna Riazi (The Gauntlet), children's TV writer Terence Taylor (PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney), game creator Shoshana Kessock (Phoenix Outlaw Productions), and author Lara Elena Donnelly (Amberlough). Moderated by Tor Books editor Diana M. Pho.
