Convention Season Feature
Bringing together comic book, sci-fi, and fantasy fans across the spectrum, Geeks OUT continues to celebrate and inspire diversity in the convention community connecting LGBTQ+ fans and allies with innovative creatives!
We’re barely out of winter, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be looking forward especially as the warmer weather brings about every reason to gather with friends! Among the most anticipated spectacles coming up this spring and summer, besides the ultimate Marvel Studios blockbuster big-screen team-up Deadpool and Wolverine that’s got everybody buzzing right now is comic convention season! The super-powered gatherings crisscrossing the country bring together genre fans across all party lines.
New York City will have a lot to celebrate with FLAME CON 2024 returning for the landmark 10th Anniversary of the expo that is produced by the LGBTQ+ non-profit Geeks OUT and showcases creators, special media guests, and promotes a safe space for LGBTQ+ fans and their allies to embrace their love of all these in comic books, arts, and entertainment while cosplaying with some of the best. The expo will take place August 17-18 at the Sheraton Times Square Hotel in the heart of New York City, with tickets already available on sale here.
Nic Gitau, the President of Geeks OUT, said about the event, “Over the last ten years Flame Con has become a home for queer fans, championed queer stories, and celebrated queer creators. We’re grateful for a community that’s grown exponentially, and we’re excited to gather the best of LGBTQ+ comics and pop culture once more, in what will be a standout 10th anniversary show.” This year’s first special guest has been announced: Molly Knox Ostertag the bestselling graphic novelist and illustrator of The Witch Boy trilogy, The Deep Dark, and The Girl from the Sea will be appearing in person.
Tickets to Flame Con are available through Eventbrite and will feature daily and weekend passes, as well as passes to the official 2024 Flame Con party. Tickets can be purchased at flamecon2024.eventbrite.com.
