We have an important and very exciting announcement! Pixelkin will be partnering up with other experts and hosting two panels at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, March 28-March 30.

Panel 1

Program title: Growing Up Geek: When Are Your Kids Ready for Your Favorite Stuff?
Program date and time: Sunday, March 30, 12:20 p.m., Hall C (Room 610)
Program description: How young is too young? You want to show your kids your favorite comics, or maybe they’re clamoring to play that game you play after they go to bed. But are they ready? We discuss what is age-appropriate, how much is too much, and more!

Panel 2

Program title: Why Isn’t Bilbo A Girl? Talking to Kids About Media Representation
Program date and time: Sunday, March 30, 3:20 p.m., Hall C (Room 610)
Program description: How do you tell kids why they can’t see themselves in media? Often we only see one character of a racial, gender, or sexual minority. Let’s be constructive, positive, and educational. Kids already ask questions. Let’s come up with answers.


We encourage you to come, listen, and engage! Both panels will include a Q&A session. If you are unable to attend but still have questions you would like to have answered, send them to us at hello@pixelkin.org—we’ll do our best to cover everything you want to know.
