    I love DragonCon. It’s my favorite convention. However, my experience at DragonCon this year wasn’t great. It was my third one and I suppose third time’s the charm–for a nightmare. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.

    Part one of my “Game of Toxic Masculinity” panel report from Dragon Con 2017 wrapped up with a discussion of show runners Benioff and Weiss and how their own toxic masculinity effects the series.

    I’ve been lucky enough to take part in many Game of Thrones panels at Dragon Con throughout the years – every year since 2012, in fact – but this year, the new High Fantasy track really went above and beyond with their Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones offerings, including an awesome panel called […]

  • Flame Con 2017: An LGBTQ+ Geek’s Paradise

    Flame Con 2017 was probably the most welcoming convention that I have ever been to. The world’s largest LGBTQ+ convention, which was once again held at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, was the safe space to end all safe spaces.
