For as long as LGBTQIA viewers have seen themselves on screen, their stories have been subject to any number of damaging and stereotypical tropes — and while there are more and more series leading the charge to break stereotypes and push representation forward, the recent LGBT Fans Deserve Better movement has made it clear these tropes persist. In this conversation, a range of creatives discuss the importance of inclusion, intersectionality, and positive LGBTQIA representation on TV.

Panelists: Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The 100), Carina MacKenzie (The Originals), Krista Vernoff (Grey’s Anatomy), Carter Covington (Faking It), Megan Townsend (GLAAD)
