Beaman Memorial Public Library is partnering with Morrill Memorial Library (MML) to offer a virtual presentation by Youth Services Librarian, Dina Delic, called “Magical Girls and Fighting Dreamers: An Exploration of Queer Representation in Manga & Anime” on Tuesday, June 18 starting at 7:00pm on Zoom.

Join fellow anime-enthusiast and MML Youth Services Librarian Dina Delic to learn about the history of queer representation in manga and anime! This program will give an overview of queer representation throughout various series, from The Rose of Versailles to Yuri on Ice, and will answer your most pressing questions: What is shipping? What is the difference between yaoi and yuri? Why are the greatest love stories in anime always platonic?

Note: This program may contain spoilers for some series.
