06.12.12 // Watch for GeekGirlCon at the Seattle Pride Parade!
GeekGirlCon is excited be walking in the Seattle Pride Parade on Sunday June 24th to show our support for the LGBTQ community. From staffers and volunteers to supporters and fans, the LGBTQ community has been part of GeekGirlCon from the start, and it is time for us to show how much we care.
Our signature GeekGirlCon color might be yellow, but our true colors are full-spectrum rainbow. A founding tenet of GeekGirlCon is acceptance and inclusion no matter who you are, and that includes all genders and orientations of self-identified geeks. GeekGirlCon strives to create and inclusive and safe organization and geek-focused events and con. We fully support Seattle Out and Proud’s mission to “Create Unity, Honor Diversity, and Achieve Equal Human Rights throughout our Region and the World.” Because, sometimes it’s not just about the geeks.
Watch for us! We’ll be in geeky cosplay or in GeekGirlCon logo garb and handing out information about GeekGirlCon ’12 as well as some goodies. The parade begins at 11:00 a.m. in downtown Seattle at 4th and Union Streets and concludes at 2nd and Denny. Visit SeattlePride.org for complete details.
