Many iconic science fiction titles, like Star Trek and Star Wars just to name a few, have always had huge LGBTQ+ fanbases, but what exactly is it about sci-fi that draws in these queer audiences? And is sci-fi media even queer inclusive?

During the "Queering Sci-Fi: Finding LGBTQ+ Representation in Straight Media" panel at this year's Los Angeles Comic Con, PRIDE's editor-in-chief Raffy Ermac and Nerd Out host Jessie Earl sat down with Entertainment Weekly writer Clarkisha Kent and Bit Different podcast hosts Cetine Dale and Rob Ondarza to talk about the past, present, and future of LGBTQ+ representation in science fiction and other geeky media!
