Last year’s con featured over 200 queer-oriented vendors alongside the likes of feature creators Kate Leth (Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat!) Dan Parent (Life with Kevin), Steve Orlando (Supergirl) and more. The con also played host to celebrity special guests Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham) and Vincent Rodriguez III (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend). This year, Flame Con is happy to be welcoming back some of last year’s featured guests such as Sina Grace (Burn the Orphanage, Li’l Depressed Boy).
In addition to Grace, Flame Con looks forward to hosting the creative talents of Tee Franklin (Bingo Love), illustrator, Jen Bartel and more. Featuring hundreds of creators exhibiting queer-positive comics, arts, crafts, clothes and entertainment, Flame Con is open to all ages and will be free for all youth on Sunday, August 19.
This year Flame Con will also be hosting a 2018 Flame Con Kickoff Party, IGNITE, on Friday, August 17. Tickets for that will be available at checkout and for a discounted price by bundling with a full weekend pass.
We look forward to geeking out with you!
