Sara Ramirez, Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker Among Actors at Convention Celebrating Queer Women on TV

6 March 2017 6:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ClexaCon, a new convention celebrating Lgbtq women in entertainment, generated such interest among both fans and actors that “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramirez turned up in Las Vegas to attend the event, which was held over the weekend.

“Got 4 hours of sleep 2 b at last day of ClexaCon & so worth it! Loving it,” Ramirez tweeted Sunday. The actress, who played Dr. Callie Torres on “Grey’s Anatomy” and is, like the character, bisexual, stayed all day Sunday and sat in the audience for a series of lively panels, including conversations about the representation of queer women of color in the media and why authentic representation for Lgbtq women matters. The panel about depictions of queer women of color in the media spontaneously re-convened as the convention drew to a close, and Ramirez participated in that conversation, staying on as long as she could to talk with panelists and take photos with attendees.
