Queer Representation in All-Ages and Youth Media
Many people have dismissed queer content as adult content inappropriate for kids. However, as we've seen in the popularity and successes of Legend of Korra, Steven Universe, and Lumberjanes, LGBTQIA+ characters and storylines can resonate with young audiences. Moderator Dylan Edwards (Valley of the Silk Sky) leads as a discussion with Shannon Watters (Lumberjanes), James Tynion IV (Detective Comics, The Backstagers), Paige Braddock (Stinky Cecil, Peanuts, Jane's World), Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim), and Josh Trujillo (Adventure Time, Love Machines) about how we can better include healthy representation and how to make it standard practice.
