The Full Lid-21st June 2024

Celebrations is a collection of short stories spotlighting LGBTQIA+ characters across various eras of Trek. Except it’s not just that. A special like this which piggybacks an established event like Pride comes with a price tag: it’s audience rightly expects these characters to be treated with the respect they deserve. Ratcheting up the pressure is representation itself as a balancing act: put these characters on a pedestal and you make them hard to relate to. Swing the other way and embrace the too-familiar darkness faced by marginalized groups, and we’ve regressed to burying our gays.
