March 1 Common Hour: LGBTQ+ Representation in Japanese Animation

LGBTQ+ representation has been present in Japanese animation since the 1990s. Our panel, from the Japanese Culture and Animation Club Executive Board, will explore standard anime titles and themes in exploring the impact on western otaku culture, as well as LGBTQ+ policy in Japan. The final 10 minutes will be reserved for a question and answer session.
