In this episode, I talked to Jaycee Dubyuh of Gaymer Allied People of Color, Neisha Mulchan of Diversely Geek and Bianca Hernandez-Knight of The Jane Austen Universe and Virtual Jane Con about the importance of building community in fandom spaces. Delving into our own fandom histories, we discuss the online and off-line activities, adventures, friendships and relationships that we built through our fandom experiences. Jaycee, Neisha and Bianca then discuss their inspiration and motivation for building their own fan communities that have had a global reach and tangible impact in their respective communities. This episode was filled with so many thoughtful takeaways and deep feels that I actually made it a two-parter. So remember to check out the next episode to hear the rest of the conversation.
