Geeks OUT Presents: Serving Magical Person Realness

Geeks OUT Presents: Serving Magical Person Realness

From Sailor Moon to Yuri on Ice, anime, manga, and graphic novels have been evolving platforms for the showcasing of LGBTQ+ characters and themes. Sit with us, as a panel of editors, artists, and cultural commentators, discuss the works that sparked their interest in Japanese visual media, as well as the nuanced spectrum of queer representation, discussing the historical significance of censorship and queer-coding to the canonical representation of queer identities today.

.

Geeks OUT was proud to present a panel at Anime NYC this year featuring Kiara Valdez (Associate Editor at First Second), Erica Friedman (founder of Yuricon), Princess Weekes (Assistant Editor – The Mary Sue), and moderated by our own Michele Kirichanskaya.
