A Community Divided: Bullying Within the Cosplay Community and How to Solve the Problem

Bullying, gatekeeping, harassment: We might all be just ‘geeks in costume’ but there are serious issues within our community that we need to not only acknowledge but also tackle and work together to fix. Join us to discuss the roots of these issues: sexism, racism, transphobia and homophobia within the community and conventions at large, and how to do what you can to help stop it. We’ll also discuss how to handle bullying in all forms when it’s aimed at yourself and your friends, and how to build a supportive community around you.
