The eyes of the pop culture world are on the transgender community as more and more comics, television shows, and movies feature trans characters, trans creators, and their stories. How do trans characters affect narratives in popular genres? How can trans creators, artists, and actors best make their mark on popular arts? What are the next steps for trans representation from comic books to Hollywood? Join Prism Comics and moderator Tara Madison Avery (Gooch, Stacked Deck Press) for a lively discussion of these and other topics with panelists Julie Rei Goldstein (Time Traveling Bong), Mikki del Monico (Alto), Shadi Petosky (Danger & Eggs), Bishakh Som (The Other Side: A Queer Paranormal Romance Anthology), Kylie Wu (Trans Girl Next Door), and Billy White Acre (composer, musician).
