I need to see fantasy rooted in the reality of the heroes I have witnessed throughout my life. Black women of all complexions and sizes; the LGBTQ community demanding acknowledgement along with all those refusing to remain silent and invisible. The word heroes get tossed around fairly easily these days. The real heroes I know show tremendous strength of character and physicality dealing with what society has dropped in their laps. They come from all walks of life. They are people of color, queer, immigrants, survivors of abuse. We are our own heroes. We stand at the ready.
