  • Queercon SIX!

    HEY ALL YOU AWESOME QUEER PEOPLE!

    Six years ago, we didn't know what was going to happen.

    We thought we might get beaten up. We thought we might get made fun of. Worst of all, we thought we might throw a party and nobody would come.

    Instead, we booked a DJ, hung up a rainbow flag, and threw one of the best underground dance parties at Defcon. We've done the same every year since then. And we're really looking forward to doing it again this year. The prefunk in the chill area went really well last year, so we'll do that too.

    DEFCON, WE LOVE YOU! Thanks for five amazing years... we're really looking forward to our sixth!

    Will be activating the forum for this and moving this there with a 4 week redirect.

    Some how I missed your announcement, or I would have activated the forum earlier.

    The description is still:

    Any changes?

    Good luck!

      I missed this last year and was saddened. I don't even remember why I missed it. Definitely going to rectify that this year.

        Nope, no changes... except we'll be even more fabulous and awesome than last year!

        All we need now is a space. Hopefully Defcon can help us out with that. :)

          Making the assumption that Grifter has the Skyboxes again this year, you should probably contact him to request space. Obviously, if it is going to be somewhere else, you will need to talk to the people that are running that space.

          In the past he has announced opportunity to request SkyBox space through the forums, but I've not seen him on the forums lately.

            any word on the space? this'll be my first defcon, and the fact that there's a queer event there makes me even more excited for it!

              You guys will be in the same space as last year, baring any crazy changes. Don't worry, we'll always find you guys a home to party down!

                yeah, last year we didn't know originally and wound up moving half of the lockpick village over in order to activate that partition.

                many, many uber thanks went to Zac for getting us keyed access to the storage closet in our village so we could properly secure the expensive stuff at night with the parties going on.

                that last skybox works well for QueerCon since it has its own restroom etc... it's like a private little club all on its own.
                "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                  We love that space, and we especially love how awesome the Lockpick Village guys were last year in accommodating us. Thanks very much... it'll be another great show! :)

                  We have a full lineup, but the random DJ we worked into the lineup last year is welcome to contact me if you're coming again this year. You were awesome, so if you're down to play we'll try to work you in again.

                    Yay, another year for Queercon. I had a blast last year even though there is quite the dearth of queer geek girls.

                    More purple shiny glow sticks please!

                      This is so awesome! This is my first time too and I can't wait for this. What night will it be?

                          We'll be doing the dance event on Friday night, as always... 10pm until late. :)

                          There will be a prefunk at 4pm in the chill space, also on Friday. It's a nice opportunity to meet and socialize before the party!

                            Do you guys need money for any expenses or help setting up? I'll be getting in Thursday night, feel free to contact me on AIM (plaztiksyke) with any details.

                            Thanks for putting this together again, I've met so many awesome long-term friends at these events!

                              Hello all,

                              I was there last year. Met some nice people. It was fun. The 'chill out' balcony was a really good idea.
                              Although, I was a little anoyed by the DJ playing rather underground and not really 'gay'.
                              Since I am a DJ myself and dj-ing in a few discotheques in the Netherlands from which 1 trendy gay club, I pay extra attention to the music when I am visitting other places so my hands where itching last year :-)
                              Perhaps I can play a few songs this year. I will bring my hard-drive with the 'good stuff'.
                              Hope to see you all!

                              Regards

                              Maarten
