Description: WWU Queer Con is a single day comics convention that will be held April 29th on Western Washington University’s campus in Bellingham Washington. It will have an artist alley featuring panels, a costume contest, and 30+ professional and student artists writers, and vendors, all focused on queer comics and science fiction media. With this event, organizers hope to provide an opportunity to celebrate queer comics and creators and bring further visibility to the queer community in Bellingham. It is also important to us to make family friendly queer events accessible for both WWU students and the surrounding community. Garrison Titan and Alpha Base will be raising money for Equal Rights Washington, an LGBTQ+ organization that fights for justice and equity for Washington's LGBTQ+ community. ERW has already been contacted and will be sending two volunteers, (including the chair of the board) to assist with gathering donations. Adding pride to your costumes is encouraged!
