A sad fact in any industry…

Even vanguards and pioneers get erased in the end.

Space Husbands!

Where I talk about Space Husbands, book boy friends, space partners etc. 😀

The Skiffy and Fanty Show

The term Space Husbands really took off after Rogue One exploded into our psyches and took root to create new Star Wars mythos for fans tired of the lack of diversity in science fiction movies, indeed of the entire genre. To the immense delight of fans everywhere, Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe appeared and the ship literally grew until it had fanfiction, fan art, fan mixes and other transformative works.

Kudos to Wen Jiang and Donny Yen who really fleshed out the personalities and characters of these two men. I feel emotional writing this because it is so rare to see such a loving and lovable relationship between the two. They also play off each other very well: Baze the strong and silent type, Chirrut the idealist and ever-optimistic. Likewise, the fact that they are Asian is a tremendous boost.

Signal Boost #12: A Conversation about Conventions, Economics, and Inclusion

The Skiffy and Fanty Show

On today’s Signal Boost, Shaun and Jen discuss conventions, the economics of attendance, and how they can be more inclusive. They’re particularly concerned with how convention culture tends to be somewhat exclusive, how conventions often fail utterly at disability access, and how something called WorldCon should MAYBE travel around the world a bit more.

Then they squeeeeeee about this week’s mini-boosts. Make sure you let us know about things that YOU love that we should share in future boosts!

We hope you enjoy the episode!
