Javicia Leslie (#Batwoman), Chyler Leigh (#Supergirl), Nicole Maines (#Supergirl), Nancy Kiu (#Batwoman), and Carl Ogawa join the “CW’s LGBTQ Superheroes Panel” at this year’s #Outfest!

As superhero films continue to dominate the box office, theater-goers rarely if ever see a character from the LGBTQIA+ community up on the big screen — an odd reality in a genre with a seemingly unlimited imagination. However, in television, The CW’s DC Comics-inspired series have been light years ahead in representing queer and trans superheroes, garnering a huge and vocal fan base in the process. The talent and creators from some of these trailblazing works discuss their landmark roles, and the impact they have on their fans.

Welcome to BE Conference 2021 – 3 DAYS of mentorship, education, and career-building workshops by the most influential women in media and entertainment. WrapWomen presents an invaluable digital-first program for attendees with A-list speaker panels, tailored mentorship sessions, career-building workshops, health and wellness activations, and real-time networking opportunities via WrapConnect.
