Science fiction and fantasy have caught the imaginations of many people; however, most of the time, the characters of these stories are underrepresented by racial, ethnic and gender minorities. For example....

How many times have you wondered where are the super heroes, video game characters, and movie and tv roles of color? 

Have you ever questioned or been questioned about cosplaying a character who is not of your race or gender? 

Do you look around at conventions and wish there were at least a few more people who look like you? 

If so,this Meetup is for you. Although we will focus on exploring fandom movies, tv shows, video games, cosplay, and conventions from a minority perspective, people of all races and ethnicities are welcome to join this group.
