Illuminate 2022 with the CGLCC and stars from Star Trek Discovery!

Come celebrate the changing face of entertainment with us. From its inception, Star Trek stands proud in highlighting and supporting diverse communities. During this session meet two cast members from Star Trek: Discovery as they discuss representation and inclusion on and off the screen.

Del Barrio is currently working on Season 5 of Discovery as well as other independent projects, and is using their growing platform to advocate for other transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals.
