It’s no secret that Doctor Who has an enormous popularity amongst gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered friends on both sides of the Atlantic. But what is it about this show, as opposed to any of the other shows, that brings everyone together? We’ll have a sensitive and thoughtful discussion about the mainsteam appeal of Doctor Who to the LGBT community.

Geek before it was chic. | | Growing up in Nebraska in the 80's and watching Doctor Who was sometimes a challenge (thank you PBS). But I wouldn't have had it any other way. Now living in San Francisco, this is my fifth Gallifrey One (I still get all fan boy when I meet people from the program). My goal is to help the newer viewers of DW appreciate what came before 2005.

Jersey girl exiled in California, LGBTQ educator, high femme in great shoes, and, above all, lifelong geek. Ask me about anything, but bonus points to you if it discusses in the intersection of LGBTQ acceptance and pop culture. (Triple points if you can work feral cats into the conversation.) But mostly I'm living proof that philosophy majors get real jobs.

My dark yet silly stand up has been seen at the Women in Comedy Festival and I was the first transgender performer at Portland's All Jane comedy festival. My debut comedy album, Intimate Apparel, was a #1 best seller on Amazon. I write for Pajiba, and ModCloth made me their #FashionTruth girl last year.
