The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

I never understood why the genre I love so much doesn’t love me back :(

I admit this broke my heart because…me, too.
I have to say that one of the most unexpected and amazing things about Medievalpoc is that I’ve discovered I’m not alone in feeling that way; that there is a whole community out here trying to change that.
