Representation in Sci-Fi and Horror

Joanne Askew believes there should be diverse representation in fiction. She is an advocate for more women, and more LGBTQIA+ people in these genres. Sci-fi has always pushed boundaries and shown audiences a new way of seeing the world. Expanding on this by supporting more underrepresented characters, subjects and authors is a passion for Joanne Askew.
