HEY, QUEER FANDOM! I NEED YOUR HELP!

jmalfroy:

Do you love to talk about your queer and/or trans* readings and headcanons? Do you create or consume fanfiction or fanart featuring queer and/or trans* readings of characters? Do you identify as queer and/or trans*? Are you below the age of 30? If you responded “yes” to all these questions, I’M LOOKING FOR YOU!

I am completing a thesis this year on queer fanworks as a reaction to heteronormativity in the media. I will be writing about queer fan culture and the way it indicates the need for better queer representation in the media, particularly media for young people. In order for my thesis to be as accurate and well rounded as possible, I need to hear from you!

If you’d like to help, you can fill out THIS SURVEY, which includes questions about your experience as a queer person in fandom – how you participate in fandom, how queer fanworks have helped and inspired or harmed and irritated you as a queer person, how well you feel fanworks handle queerness, etc!

It is YOUR CHOICE how ANONYMOUS or NOT ANONYMOUS this is! The results will be used to help me draw informed conclusions about queer fan culture and fanworks in my senior thesis. I will compile the information and potentially quote from your responses in my paper – but if you do not want to provide your name or even a nickname/username, or you don’t feel very comfy with your responses being used word for word in a stranger’s academic paper, that’s totally okay and you can let me know.

ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? TOO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT QUEER FANWORKS AND REPRESENTATION TO PUT IN ONE SURVEY? SHOOT ME A MESSAGE, OR EMAIL ME AT THEPRINCECHUCKIE@GMAIL.COM!
