Just so I have some idea of what's going on and seeing as there's more of it than I was expecting.
The full schedule:

Thursday August 30, 12 noon to 1:30pm
We`re Here, We`re Queer... Are we used to it?
Cecilia Tan (M), Catherine Lundoff, Kevin Roche, Gene Armstrong

There have always been lesbian, gay, bi, and trans fans, and the appearance of queer characters in sf goes all the way back to the first story of Robert Heinlein\'s featuring Lazarus Long, published in 1949. But for decades GLBT characters were relegated to the background in \"mainstream\" sf. Recently, though, as queer characters have started to become commonplace in mundane tv, movies, and books, so have they moved into the fore in sf genre media, even video games. Lost Girl (Syfy) features a bisexual main heroine, Marvel comics just had their first gay wedding, Dragon Age has a gay romance plotline... Does this mean we\'ve won? Does this mean we\'re not special anymore? How does inclusion and visibility of GLBT characters in science fiction affect GLBT fandom, and fandom at large?
