One of my highlights of WisCon 41 was the [community profile] wiscon_vidparty. There were 19 premieres, discussed at a panel the next day. Tweets of this panel in storify form:

There was also a new-to-me vid, Gloria by sweetestdrain, Sarah Connor Chronicles, that I absolutely adored:

What is amazing about the vidshow is the intense feeling of being in community and enjoying the vids together with people I love; being at a party but not having to socialize; and singing along with abandon. We were also in the biggest room this year!

Ways WisCon has changed from 31 to 41 (which are the years I've attended).

--Gained an Anti-Abuse Team
--Gained live captioning
--There's a vid party! [community profile] wiscon_vidparty
--More safer spaces
--More media/fandom panels
--A gaming track
--Many more people of color in attendance
--More people of color as Guest of honor (I wrote about this in 2015
at my Wordpress blog and will update the spreadsheet shortly.
--Pronoun stickers!
--Social Interaction badges (these are explained at my wordpress blog
Part one and part two and with pictures.

Those are just a few of the more obvious changes. I look forward to where WisCon is going in the next ten years! :D

I am signed up for one panel (as a panelist) at WisCon. Come see me if you like!

Power, Privilege, and Oppression (Feminism and Other Social Change Movements)

Description: We will discuss types of harassment such as gaslighting, stalking, bullying, concern trolling, sea lioning, etc. We'll discuss ways to respond to harassment both as victim/survivor and what to do if you recognize yourself as a perpetrator.

Location: Caucus
Schedule: Fri, 1:00–2:15 pm

One thing I hope to discuss in this panel is the power of language which is something I love talking about.
