Welcome To Flame Con

Flame Con is a two-day comics, arts, and entertainment expo showcasing creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom. It features thoughtful discussions, exclusive performances, screenings, costumes, and more! The event is presented by New York's GEEKS OUT non-profit group. 

Geeks of all types are invited to attend and celebrate the diversity and creativity of queer geekdom and LGBTQ contributions to pop culture. 

Flame Con 2015 Edit

The first Flame Con, held in June 2015, brought together the queer fan community on an unprecedented scale. Drawing over 2,200 visitors to the one-day convention, FLAME CON was the largest queer-focused pop culture expo ever held in New York. Over one hundred creators and media favorites exhibited their talents, while fans and attendees brought fantastic energy to the event, all eager to be part of a comic convention catering especially to queer tastes in comics, games, books, art, and entertainment. In New York City, #FlameCon trended on Twitter for five solid hours, and the event received glowing reviews from io9, The Mary Sue, Comic Book Resources, and more, all applauding the tremendous convergence of diversity, positivity and creativity.        

Flame Con 2016 (FLAME CON 2) Edit

FLAME CON's 2016 event will be held on AUGUST 20th and 21st, expanding to a larger venue (THE NEW YORK MARRIOTT AT THE BROOKLYN BRIDE) and features a second day to accommodate more guests, more performances, more panel discussions, and of course, more cosplay!
