Ignorance In Fandom: Dangerous Situations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Some special panelists from the Ladies of Power Organization come together (including the founder of Breach TV) to bring back the popular ALL-CON Panel Ignorance In Fandom. This is the more mature one that handles specifically fandom as it exists in the dark places online and at events. Such as harassment of fans online, of artists, of cosplayers. And the extent this harassment can lead to such as in person at conventions and other public events. It covers heavy themes such as sexism, racism, ableism, body shaming, and other things audiences may find triggering.

As all of the panelists have had their experiences and stories to share from in hopes to educate and open the floor up to the audience to share their experiences and feel less alone and be more educated to stand together and fight back against harassment. Due to the very mature and potentially triggering subject material, discretion is advised.
