Re: You forgot one!
I tend towards fandom-run conventions rather than for-profit ones, with the exception of Comic-con because it's such a force of nature. Besides, that's a comic convention, and Q's not here. :D

If you do go to any of them and wouldn't mind bringing gcon flyers, please let me know...

I'll likely hold a queer fandom room party any con I go to, so I'll promote G'con, the Network, SDQSF, and whatever else ought to be advertised.

Ahaha. This is literally walking distance from my house. Even closer walking distance from my old house!

So if you go I'll go. :3

I probably won't go to Anime LA, but I WILL probably go to Gallifrey at the same hotel. Maybe then?

Sure. :D

Keen! I'll introduce you to Virginia Hey. Are you a sci-fi fan at all?

yeah, I am

Cool! Then we'll actually have something to talk about. ;) Virginia was the blue chick, Zhaan, on Farscape, but I'm sure you already know that. I lurves her.

San Diego Comic Con lasts 13 days? Are you sure about those dates? :P

And I know it's nowhere near southern California, but there are some Toronto cons that might be of interest to people:

Toronto Trek (www.tcon.ca/tt19) has a large LGBT contingent (July 15-17), and there's someone whom we're inviting as a guest who will definitely be a draw for the community.

There's also going to be some LGBT programming at Ad Astra (www.ad-astra.org), April 8-10. (I was just asked tonight if I would moderate some panels for them.)

And you also left off Gaylaxicon 2006. We're still working on the hotel contract (I have to give our hotel liaison a kick in the pants), which is why we haven't publicized anything yet, but we're pencilled in for June 16-18, 2006.

You don't really think I'd forget G'con, do you? :P I'll include it in future updates, especially to the SDQSF e-mail list. Great to hear you have target dates! Let me know how things progress (not that you have a choice, I guess).
