Creating LGBTQ-inclusive Content for Kids

Wednesday, February 14, 2018
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Xilam Bayfront

Kids and family entertainment is arguably the very last part of the entertainment business to include positive portrayals of LGBTQ characters. But the last few years have marked a significant shift, with shows like Doc McStuffinsDanger & EggsThe Loud House and Andi Mack breaking new ground in the depiction of LGBTQ characters and issues. This session will thoughtfully address why this shift is happening, how creators and networks are approaching LGBTQ inclusion, and most importantly, how to keep up the momentum.
