Fighting Sexism and Racism

sci fi diversity infographic

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Anastasia Vitsky:

“Many proponents of sci-fi point to acceptance of “difference” as why it’s a great genre. However, protagonists of sci tend to be white men.

“I’m not talking about a secondary character or a walk-on, but the main character whose actions are integral to every major plot point.

“What responsibility do we have, as authors and readers of queer sci-fi, to work against sexism, racism, and exclusion in the books we read and write?”

This group is all about diversity – of race, of gender, of sexual orientation, and of opinion. So how can we better reflect that diversity in sci fi, and in fantasy and paranormal, for that matter, without becoming a Benneton ad with one in every color?
