Geeks OUT is launching a massive campaign to create FLAME CON, New York City’s first LGBTQ comic convention! Planned for the spring of 2015, FLAME CON will be a one-day expo showcasing dozens of creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom, including comics, video games, film, and television.
At FLAME CON, people from all corners of the LGBTQ community will be given a unique opportunity to meet up and geek out over a range of artists, creators, and vendors catering to all kinds of queer interests and tastes, with a variety of panels, an art show, and more.
They are currently looking to raise $15k to cover costs. Their kickstarter is over here , with currently over $6k raised. They are offering various incentives, including tickets, artwork, t-shirts, and meet-ups with special guests!
So if you are interested and have a bit of spare cash, think about shooting some money their way. Sounds like a fun time!
