The program for this year’s Finncon has been announced. You can find it here. I am on two program items:
Sunday July 3rd, 11:00-12:00
Trans representation in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Cheryl Morgan & Suzanne van Rooyen
Trans people are everywhere in the media these days, but are they in science fiction and fantasy? And if they are, do they look anything like real trans people, or do authors get things just as wrong as the newspapers? Our panel discusses the good, the bad and the hilariously wrong of trans representation.
Sunday July 3rd, 14:00-15:00
Music in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Catherynne M. Valente, J. Pekka Mäkelä, Suzanne van Rooyen, Cheryl Morgan (chair)
I’m waiting on an OK from the panel for the description, but I can tell you that this is going to be a David Bowie and Prince retrospective.
