Flame Con, Queer Comic Convention, Engaged In Kickstarter

Geeks OUT has launched a new campaign to fund a comic con specifically for the queer community and its allies. Called Flame Con, this event is slated to be a one-day comics, arts and entertainment expo that covers the whole spectrum of queer geek culture.

In order to fund this event for this specific portion of the queer community, Geeks OUT has launched a Kickstarter campaign.

"The LGBTQ community is separated into different groups that all too often don’t mix or learn from each other’s experiences: gays and lesbians, cisgender and trans people, twinks and bears…" the initiative's Kickstarter notes. "But comic cons are all about mixing! People of every size, gender identity and expression, age, color and type come to comic conventions to get geeky, expressing what makes each of us different, special, and awesome. A queer comic con is a great way to bring us all together under one roof."
