Anime and gaming conventions have been around for decades, giving fans of all sexualities, genders, and identities a space to celebrate the fan cultures they love. Regardless of who they are or where they came from, fans can find solace in conventions. However, finding safe spaces to express yourself isn’t always easy. While LGBTQ+ acceptance has improved significantly in the last ten years, there are still struggles that LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face. Our conventions work relentlessly to keep the space as accepting and forward as possible, through both their policies and precautionary measures.
Usagi Medical Group ensures the safety of our LGBTQ+ attendees through our inclusivity policy, stating that Usagi Medical Group is committed to diversity and inclusion among all dimensions. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability (including HIV status), veteran status, military obligations, or marital status.
Respect and Privacy
This policy applies internally (recruiting, internal promotions, training, etc.), and externally, to the people we treat. All of our crew and the patients we serve will be treated with the utmost respect and privacy. Inclusion is the backbone of the convention scene, and we work hard to maintain that.
If you or anyone you see is in a situation that’s making them uncomfortable, inform our staff and we will ensure that the problem will be dealt with properly. UsagiMed is always working towards maintaining our convention experiences as inviting and loving as possible.
We’re all about improving safety and reducing your con’s liability. Call on us so we can be your event partners. As you plan and prepare, we will answer any questions you may have about LGBTQ+ Acceptance, drafting policies, and creating a safe space for all your attendees. Feel free to drop us a question and we will answer you.
