Representation matters and can open our minds and help us see a world where LGBTQ+ people of all walks can thrive, but it can also become a box in and of itself that creators and characters are conscribed by. It goes beyond tokenism and into the realm of becoming a barrier or burden that requires queer and trans characters to be perfect, as well as a pressure to create queer and trans characters and storylines that resonate with a broad audience beyond the LGBTQ+ community. Moderated by fan favorite podcast Bitches on Comics. Join us to learn about the limitations of representation and how they navigate these pressures to create queer and trans characters that reflect their communities.
