So, I was thinking of doing a Convention Horror Stories panel And/or a LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trangender, Queer/questioning, and Allies(straight supporter)) Anime Fans Unite! panel. (as well as the Zombie panel)
Convention Horror Stories panel:
Basically, itd be a panel about either humorous or terrible con horror stories/accidents. This seems to be a popular panel that exists at other cons, so why not do one at Fanime? It'd be an hour long panel, ideally. Also, do you forumers feel that we should expand the subject matter of the panel? If so, what should it include? Do you think Fanime Con could use a "Convention Horror Stories" panel?
LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trangender, Queer/questioning, and Allies(straight supporter)) Anime Fans Unite! panel:
This, more then anything, would be a place for the queer anime fan/cosplay community (and their allies!) to gather in a moderated, open-panel environment. Itd be a place where fellow otaku (using the term loosely!) can gather and share stories, support one another, connect, and help one another feel better about who they are, regardless of their gender identity or sexual preference. Also, at the beginning of the panel, I, and fellow panelists, would kick the panel off with dispelling rumors about the different parts of the LGBTQ community and doing a "dictionary" section where we cover many different terms that are common in the LGBTQA community (like bisexual, lesbian, pansexual, omnisexual, gay, gender identity, etc) so that people could get a better grasp of things they did not know about before. Do you think this panel could be beneficial? Any suggestions for this panel? Do you see any potential negatives?
So, with that, I'd like some thought and/or feedback regarding my panel ideas. ^^
