Anime has long enjoyed an uninhibited nature, and several titles were among the first to depict LGBT characters. However, as an industry of novelty, many of these characters and associated messages were various shades of toxic cultural misunderstandings about LGBT people and experiences. Fortunately, several recent shows have made great strides to include LGBT characters and issues. This panel will examine the history of LGBT in anime, problematic trends within the genre, and discuss how some creators are working to do better.
