The dream of diverse science fiction and fantasy has been in the minds of many since childhood. Watching science fiction movies and television shows such as Buck Rogers, Star Wars, Battle Star Galactica, and Star Trek but with a wider spectrum of representation has been a long-term aspiration. It is essential that fandom is represented positively, diversely, and fairly. An important part of understanding diversity is that it includes similarities as well as differences. Understanding that we have similar interests or beliefs can encourage cooperation and cohesion within our community.
Diversity enhances the intellectual, emotional, economic, moral, and spiritual life of the community. Achieving a more diverse environment is a way to improve the Dragon Con experience for all while promoting respect for each of us as individuals. This track offers all of this while covering animation, art, books, comics, cosplay, games, movies, and more.
Diversity encompasses complex differences and similarities in perspectives, identities, and points of view among members of groups as well as among individuals who make up the wider community. Diversity includes important and interrelated dimensions of human identity such as race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, nationality, citizenship, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age.
