Surviving As Womyn & Nonbinary People of Colour with Mental Illness in Cosplay

Being a person of colour in cosplay has had its own challenges for many. What happens when you’re queer, womyn or nonbinary, and have mental illness on top of that? In this panel, we discuss the stigma of mental illness as womyn and nonbinary people of colour within the cosplay community and how we combat the daily struggles. We offer a safe environment to discuss the challenges and help provide solutions that will help womyn and genderqueer folks survive in cosplay and in the world.
