At MidAmeriCon II, one of the more intriguing Star Wars panels was one called “Queer Star Wars.” With a greater call for diversity in fandom, this panel explored what roads Star Wars has begun to explore in regards of diversity as well as the stumbling blocks it has had to overcome. The panel touches on the reluctance of publishing to accept LGBT characters, their recent change in acceptance, and even the corporate issues with LGBT characters when foreign markets like China are unwilling to embrace such diversity.

The panel is moderated by Matt Jacobson and features Martha Wells (the author of Star Wars: Razor’s Edge), Vivian Trask, Dr. Amy H. Sturgis and Dr. Mary A. Turzillo.
