A few words about the event

Our journey with the Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom series of events continues, this time with a new, unique perspective. We'll be joined by Star Trek's Jin Maley, Filmmaker MJ Slide, and More TBA.

In Hollywood, steps have been taken towards a more robust diversity on screen and behind the camera. But there's still so much work to do, and concerns of a "snap back" against inclusion measures is growing. Join a panel of non-binary actors, directors, crew people, and more for a candid conversation about the past, the future, and the reality of being non-binary in the film industry. Hosted by The Companion's Rebecca Davis (they/them).

Since we started this series we've been overwhelmed with the incredible response from our community. Whether it's in our social hour hang outs, or in our discord, seeing people share stories, help each other and grow together has been so inspiring. It's one of the many reasons we're creating a book with Amanda Tapping.
