While PAX continues to get queerer, given the sheer amount of content, it can be helpful to have a guide to point you in the direction of the best and brightest. So, following in our annual tradition, here is our totally unofficial queer guide for your enjoyment!
While there are a lot of great pop culture cons to attend these days, there’s still one that tops them all. This week San Diego will be filled with an influx of enthusiastic fans of comics, movies, TV, and all sorts of pop culture to celebrate their love of all things geek.
Seattle Pride is coming up in a few weeks! There’s a ton of activities going on to celebrate, so we’ve put together a list of stuff suited to those who want to explore fantasy worlds, roll dice, and get to know people in a more cozy setting. Most events are free and all-ages unless otherwise specified. Event descriptions are taken directly from their event pages.
Queer Geek would love to do more events and be a resource for more people! We are all volunteers. We do as much as we can, but there’s plenty of room for growth. In fact, we have new venues excited to work with us, just waiting for us to come up with the right event idea and someone with the bandwidth to run something.
Emerald City Comic Con is just around the corner! Every year, comic and media lovers of all stripes flock to the convention center to see celebrities, browse merchandise, check out panels and play games. Whether you want to pony up for autographs, see your favorite voice-over actors read scripts in wacky voices, or meet your favorite creators, there’s something for everyone.
It’s time for our Totally Unofficial Queer Guide to PAX West 2018, the annual gaming convention at the Washington State Convention Center that draws thousands for an epic, glorious weekend of the latest video games, tabletop, music, costumes and all sorts of general nerdery.
The 2017 Twist: Seattle Queer Film Festival offers a strong selection of queer films, with a mix of big names, local gems, and things decidedly off the beaten path. You have just two weeks (October 12-22) to catch as many as you can.
If you’re a member of the LGBTQ community and play games, whether tabletop, console or mobile, there’s a robust community and resources available to you. Local groups like Queer Geek! Seattle connect players via social media and through in-person events. Diversity-oriented conventions such as GaymerX and GeekGirlCon connect participants on a larger scale and help foster conversations on better inclusion
PAX West is coming up quickly! We publish this guide because digging through the list of panels to find LGBTQ-relevant content isn’t the easiest task. And amidst the parties thrown by huge gaming publishers, gaming news networks, and podcasts, there’s a few queer focused offsite events you need to know about. It’s time to fill you in.
Many experienced kinksters will tell you that Folsom Street Fair has become too big and well-known to enjoy, attracting gawking tourists and ultimately taming down the shock value of the public kink while Dore is more “serious” and “hardcore.” Although Dore is still relatively small compared to Folsom Street Fair or IML, there’s a ton to do and see, whether you just picked up your first harness or if you’re an old pro.
Going to International Mr. Leather 2017? This is the third iteration of a list of unofficial parties and events on International Mr. Leather weekend.
Are you ready for Emerald City Comicon this year? Like usual, there’s a ton of panels and content to be found, and I’ve scoured it all to find the most relevant content for LGBTQ folks, both official and after-hours events.
