GENDER SWAP THE DOC!

A Wibbly-Wobbly, Gender-Bender Look At The Revival Doctors By The Women Who KNOW! (Click to Watch)

Doctor Who has been a hit around the world for nearly 60 years -- and it only took about 55 to get a female iteration of The Doctor?! Yet, for all of this, The Doctor has rarely ever been a character defined by his gender -- playing the role of the earth mother, protector, and healer, The Doctor doesn’t play by the traditional rules of masculine action politics. Join a team of women ready to take on the history of the Doctor and, once and for all, answer the question -- just how far back can we travel through time and still make the case for a female Doctor (hint: the beginning)!

Panelists/Performers: Moderators: Nico Action & Kevo Risse. Panelists: Melanie Dean, Felicia Ann McNamara, Mackenzie Flohr, Neisha Mulchan

X-MEN & EVOLUTION -- From Angel To Anole: A History Of The Strangest Teens’ Strangeness 

The Uncanny X-Men have often been compared to the struggle for racial equality, the advancing rights and health concerns of the queer community, and the plight of those with disabilities -- and sometimes, that’s even the intention. And while over the years the parallels haven’t always flourished under every pen, there have always been elements of the X-Men that have echoed those sentiments. Join a diverse team of former X-Kids, now adults, as they look back on the diversity and inclusion (or lack thereof) that helped to shape their experiences. From the overwhelming heteronormative whiteness of the O5 X-Men to the seldom-human-looking mutants of Wolverine & The X-Men, the strangeness of The Strangest Teens Of All Time has never been so nostalgic.

Panelist: Nico Action (Moderator), Taryn Inglima, Joshua Weil, Arturo Rojas, Nathan Polette, Rod Rodderz 

WEDNESDAY, 10/28/20, 7:00 PM (YouTube)

FAST & FURIOUS & EVOLVING -- The Forward Momentum of Representation In The Fast & Furious Franchise

The Fast & Furious franchise spans 20 years, 10 films, 2 short films, an animated series, 16 soundtracks, a worldwide stunt show tour, 7 videogames, several toy lines, and even a theme park attraction. Throughout the franchise (10th highest-grossing film franchise to date), the face of culture (and film!) changed -- beginning with a movie with barely any female characters with agency, featuring stereotypes and slurs, to the franchise creating spin-offs centering around characters of color and women and even trans-character inclusive video games, join the voices of the 2 Fast 2 Forever podcast, Joey & Joe Two, along with former guests Rachel Shepard, Kevo Risse, & Nico Action as they examine the ever-evolving media powerhouse.

Panelists: Nico Action (Moderator), Joey Lewandowski, Joe Two, Rachel Sheperd, Kevo Risse
