Event session

This panel discusses what asexuality is and is not, and proposes ways for authors to explore this overlooked orientation in their characters. Is it enough that a character has no on-page sex life, or should asexuality be more positively portrayed? Asexuality in real-time fandom and asexual characters in fiction and media may also be discussed as time allows.

Sometimes the greatest thing since sliced bread isn't your cup of tea. How do you handle it when everyone around you is singing the praises of something that just didn't click for you? Is it OK to dislike something even if it's changing the world? Can you appreciate it for what it tried to do even if it didn't do it for you? Are there ways to still usefully participate in the conversation?
