Outlantacon is an Atlanta-based event for the Queer Geek audience! You’ll find all the usual convention fare here—discussion panels, gaming, costuming, special events, etc— the difference is that it all has a queer ‘bent’ to it. Here you can enjoy all the convention trappings in an atmosphere where you’re free to be yourself! We also offer some pretty unique twists as well, like our own versions of Match Game (a staple since 2007), Project Cosplay (2010), Nea’s Drag Race (2011) and the wildly popular Sock Puppet Theatre.

Hamacon stands for “Huntsville & Madison Anime Convention” aka we’re the Rocket City’s anime con! We run two major events a year, a three day full fledged con in June, and a one day con in November. Either way, we treat you with tons of amazing events and panels, a big ol’ gaming area for both video games as well as the tabletop variety, a Dealer’s Room, an Artist Alley, Cosplay, and more! Not to mention, we try and sprinkle as many smaller events we can throughout the year as well.

You probably know by now that LibertyCon is a convention that prides itself on great guests, phenomenal panels and a killer ConSuite. We are a convention that is small on purpose (we limit the attendees to 500) since we want to give the fans a chance to sit down and chat with the guests. Sure we could try to bring in twice the attendees, but do you think you would be able to sit on a couch with Terry Brooks talking about law or playing Magic the Gathering with Brandon Sanderson if we did?
