Boskone schedule, I'm pretty sure

It needed a few revisions, but this is where it is right now!

6:00-7:00: Sexual Harassment & Assault In Fandom. No description, and I'm the only one on it; if cluegirl and aquila_dominus are there that early, they are so drafted!

11:00 - 12:00: Unpacking the SF QUILTBAG. So human sexuality is a continuum and "normal" is a null concept. The term LGBT has been around for nearly 30 years, pointing to some areas on that continuum. How has SF/F/H literature featured these aspects of the continuum? Let's name some outstanding examples. How have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender fans fared within fandom?

12:30 - 1:00: Reading: Shira Lipkin. As usual, if you can only come to one thing, come to the reading!

1:00 - 2:00: How Bad Can A Hero Be?. He may lie, cheat, steal, curse, flirt mercilessly, and disembowel bunches of hapless Darklordian henchman with a quip on his lips and a song in his heart. But can she step on her hamster's head in a fit of pique? Let's see where the boundaries of our sympathy for heroes, heroines, and their stories lie.

I actually have a whole day of no panels. I don't remember the last time that happened. They were worried about me having too many things on Sunday, but I was like "No, I've done 7-hour blocks of programming before, this is so not a problem."

The schedule as a whole isn't out yet, so I'm not sure what else I'll want to go to, but definitely the Tricky Pixie and Heather Dale concerts (for which I might be merch wenching? Uncertain, verifying) and a bunch of readings.

Four panels! This is like a vacation, you guys.
