ClexaCon 2019 Concerns and Coverage from @kleffnotes

As a member of the press and someone who has covered ClexaCon previously, and even relatively recently, I feel I must discuss some of my thoughts about the current issues, as well as some previous issues, I am having with the convention. While I could present my thoughts through Twitter, as I have this platform I felt an article would better suit my needs. The Nerdy Girl Express is also where I have shared this coverage and including this article would allow for direct reference on the site.

Queer Representation and Queer Spaces from @kleffnotes

Recently there has been a great deal of discussion online, primarily on Twitter, concerning representation in media specific conventions and how this representation impacts these queer spaces. While no specific convention has been named it has become fairly apparent from comments and from inferencing that the convention in question is ClexaCon. A number of topics have been presented including how inclusive the convention truly is based on how primarily white, cis, and straight their featured guests appear to be. I will note there are some women of color on the featured guest list as well as some out women, though I will admit this number is small.

@ClexaCon London Small Panel YouTube Additions from @kleffnotes

After releasing some of their larger panels, ClexaCon posted a number of videos of their smaller panels from ClexaCon London. I took a bit of time to check out the new additions and wanted to share a bit about them with those who either couldn’t attend the convention or might have missed out on some of these panels. While the larger panels are always great, smaller panels help to focus more on specific issues and populations within the community that don’t always get discussed in the bigger rooms.
