Dieselfunk Dispatch: Cons of Color, Gender, and Inclusion

Posted by April 24, 2018 Comment

Greetings, Dieselfunkateers! Conventions of color, gender, and inclusion are everywhere! Over last weekend with the “Postponement till Further Notice” from Universal FanCon, the critical noise got quite heavy. But rising from that trauma was a defiance against the perception that people of color, women, and LGBTQ groups can’t make things happen. For every one event that bites the dust, there’s a legion of events that come off quite successfully. Many can be proud to have done so for years. The decision was made to collect a list and provide links to events that are all about inclusion and positivity. Why? Because everyone deserves representation.

They are:

East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC)

Schomburg Black Comic Book Day

Women In Comics Con

Black Age of Comics

 

Latino Comics Expo

 

Flamecon

 

Black Comics Expo

Khemfest

Onyxcon

Atlanta Scifi and Fantasy Expo

Motor City Black Age of Comics

 

Glass City Comix Fest

 

Asian American Comicon

Black Comix Arts Festival

Kids Comic Con

Black Speculative Arts Movement

SOL-Con

Black Comix Day

Blerd City

Blerd Con

Pocket-Con

Blacktasticon

Mecca Con

Mid-City Micro-Con

Wicomicon

…and many more.

PLEASE NOTE: This list is by no means complete nor in any specific order. That part will come later. We encourage anyone who has more links to Cons of Inclusion to send them in. Further, the list will expand to have calendars and links. The Dieselfunk Dispatch will cover each event individually in the coming days and weeks as best we can.

WE ARE HERE!

“This post was updated to include Glass City Comix Fest.”
