Geeks OUT DC & Legendary Women - Representation Happy Hour

Monday
July 25, 2016
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Black Cat
1811 14th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20009  

Geeks OUT rallies, empowers and promotes queer geeks. Legendary Women is an organization devoted to promoting the empowerment of women, both in the media and their everyday lives and endeavors. Join us both at Black Cat for a happy hour discussion on representation in geeky media! Ghostbusters and Star Trek have just come out and work as a springboard for the chat.

What examples stuck out to you as a kid or an adult? How do you feel about reboots and changing existing characters versus making new properties? How does having diverse staff behind the scenes affect things? We'd also love to hear the perspective from folks who are creators, too.

Meet us for drinks to talk about this and more—and yes, there are PokeStops nearby. Happy Hour drink specials go on all the way until 10:00 p.m., but keep in mind the bar's cash only. RSVP by visiting us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/161048614306193/
