Play Roundtable 2: Exploring Gender through Larp

Moderated by: Alex Rowland

 

Featuring: Ashleigh La Porta, Katie Gordon, and Kim Sward

 

This roundtable discusses using larp to explore gender in personal ways, such as experimenting with presentation, trying to understand other people’s experiences, and trying on something that might represent a person’s authentic self. Participants will discuss personal stories of how larp was part of their own journeys to transition or explore gender. The panel will also discuss using larp to engage with issues of gender and society, such as sexism, gender role expectations, transphobia, etc.
