PAX East 2016 – Press XY Presents: Crossplay – Cosplay and Gender Identity

Cosplay has had a long journey from its roots as a small subculture to an obligatory part of the convention experience. Some Cosplayers challenge their costuming skills by dressing as characters of the opposite gender, but others use cosplay as serious way to explore gender identity. Join our panel of cosplayers and transgender advocates to learn how gender and cosplay have merged into the phenomenon of “Crossplay”.

Panelists: Charli Battersby [Game Designer, Website], Mollie Patterson [Writer, Website], Cassandra Lease [Cosplayer, Amazon Pink], Jay Justice [Editor, Website]
