“Trek’s Change?” – Trans and Nonbinary Identity Across Screen & Fandom

Trans fan panelists, an affirming parent of a trans fan, and the audience discuss Trek’s representation of gender diversity and transition, along with how the show and its fandom have influenced or inspired our own gender journeys. Is Trek evolving? Is there still space in space to improve? Have storytellers in our other fandoms done it better?


A respectful reminder this panel is open to all attendees, but please be mindful some attendees may share personal stories that ought remain within the room.
