Announcing QAFcon 2008!!!!!!!
Announcing the first ever (that we know of) Queer as Folk fandom convention...
WHO: The entire fandom is invited! WHAT: A big, huge fangirl meet-and-greet and SQUEEfest WHERE: Toronto WHEN: One whole weekend, summer 2008 (specific date to be determined)
We - faile02 and pendulumchanges, your friendly QAFcon co-chairs - were thinking about how amazing it would be to get a whole bunch of fangirls together to squee about our love for QAF. We're in the early planning stages, but we've already got tons of great ideas and we're really excited about this!
Possible QAFcon activities/events include: * a tour of QAF filming locations in Toronto * fic discussions * episode viewings * icon/graphic tutorials * a dance party (to a QAF soundtrack of course) in the real Woody's! * character/meta discussions * fic writing workshops/roundrobins * a costume contest!
We plan to hold QAFcon in a hotel in downtown Toronto. Convention attendees will have to buy a ticket in order to attend. The ticket price will be set based on the expected number of attendees (the more people who attend the cheaper it'll be!) and the events we decide to include (i.e. the size and number of conference rooms we need to reserve in order to have our squeefest). Everyone will be responsible for getting to and from Toronto on their own and paying for their own lodgings (although if enough people attend we might be able to get a group rate at the hotel...)
So now... a poll!
