Panel references (Disability and Gender Diversity & Sexuality in SFF)

Panel references (Disability and Gender Diversity & Sexuality in SFF)

I was on two panels at Au Contraire (more on the convention as a whole later) and mentioned I’d post details of the works I discussed (or meant to discuss but ran out of time). I didn’t make full notes, so this won’t be a lot of use to those who weren’t there, sorry – although I understand at least part of each panel may be podcast and if so I’ll post details here.
