    In July, Fanlore had a great Fandom in Color themed month, featuring pages of all kinds related to characters of color; events and communities that celebrate them; and articles, discussions, and fan activism around race and fandom. You can check out all of the great pages and topics Fanlore highlighted using the Fandom in Color dedicated tag on Tumblr. (Or #FandominColor if Twitter is your preference!) Fanlore also held a Discord editing chat on the same theme that gave rise to some excellent discussion, edits and new pages -- thanks to everyone who came along!
