Queering Activism: How Fans Shift Narratives, Fight Evil, and Win
Fans everywhere are joining forces to fight for better representation in the media we love. And that's not all: our super-powered storytelling, social media, and fandom skills are also tools we can use to defeat unjust laws and bigoted policies. Are you ready to suit up and change the world for the better? Join expert campaigners as we grow an LGBTQ geek movement to resist, persist, and insist on a just and fabulous world for everyone. We will arm you with tools to build a campaign strategy for whatever your cause and help you connect with fellow fans and activists.
