And if you – yes, YOU – have any ideas, or want to participate in a Pride Alley table?  Give ’em a shout, why don’cha?

Read on for the full deets – and see you at Awesome Con!


Awesome Con is proud to partner with Geeks OUT to present the first ever Pride Alley in 2017!

A spotlight on queer creators and fans, Pride Alley will unite the LGBTQ activities around Awesome Con with a dedicated section of Artist Alley and three days of panels and special events.

Awesome Con is proud of all of our fans, guests, exhibitors, and artists – and as we started to build this year’s event, we wanted to do more and create a bigger platform to better celebrate and educate DC’s LGBTQ community. This is important to us and who we want to be.

Wanna take part? Pride Alley’s table and panel submissions are open now!
