Doctor Who (& its Fandom) Have a Long Way to Go wrt Race, Diversity

This entry is cross-posted from Erika’s personal blog.

Hello gentle readers, I’ve mostly been expressing myself on Twitter these days. It seems like it’s so much less pressure than writing a blog post — which I know makes no sense when a tweet thread can be longer than a blog post. Brains are weird.

Anyway, today’s tweet thread is something important, so I’m also posting it here.

I think I may cross-post this over on the Verity! site as well. [Look! I did!] It’s a message I think a lot of people need to hear. And I fervently hope people will click through the links and listen to the POC who are talking about this and not just take it from some white chick.

Many thanks to @InquiringJoy, from whom I got several of these links. You should definitely follow her for great content like this and much more.

Extra! – Comfort & Joy

What makes a comfort story for you? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
