2011 FLIER








OutlantaconOutlantacon is an Atlanta-based event for the Queer Geek audience! We hold two events each year—a full weekend-long convention in May and a one-day Gaming bonanza in November. In 2011, Outlantacon will be playing host to Gaylaxicon, the national GLBT convention for the queer audience.

This year Outlantacon is proud to host GAYLAXICON 2011!

Gaylaxicon, the annual GLBT convention event, makes its return to Atlanta in 2011, following a very successful first visit in 2007. We'll be featuring all the usual Outlantacon goodies, just on a bigger scale. Look for our own special versions of Match Game and Project Cosplay (a big hit at Outlantacon 2010), live entertainment, etc; plus all the usual Gaylaxicon events like the Chocolate Symposium, Gaylactic Jeopardy!, and of course the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards.
