New Gay ComiCon Coming to NYC in June
Geeks OUT is excited to announce that NYC’s first-ever queer-focused comic con, FLAME CON, will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn. After running a successful Kickstarter for the event last November, which raised over $19,000, Geeks OUT is set to bring together LGBTQ fans on an unprecedented scale.
Geeks of all types are invited to attend and celebrate the diversity and creativity of queer geekdom and LGBTQ contributions to pop culture. This year, NYC Pride month will get its geek on! Flame Con will be a one-day comics, arts, and entertainment expo showcasing creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom, including comics, video games, film, and television.
There will be thoughtful discussions, exclusive performances, screenings, costumes, and more! The expo will be followed by an after-party, also taking place at the Grand Prospect Hall.
