For four years now, FlameCon, the premier LGBTQ Comic Con has been happening, and gaining momentum and fans. It has become the world’s largest Queer Comic Con, too.
Intersetingly enough, for the first time in FlameCon’s history, it is being held in Manhattan, as opposed to Brooklyn. For those of you who are unfamiliar with New York City, it is composed of five Boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx (or, as the locals call it, “the Bronx”), and Staten Island. Long Island is often referred to as the Sixth NYC Borough, but it is not actually a Borough of NYC.
Now, I shall admit, when I learned that this year’s FlameCon shall be held in Manhattan, I was shocked! As most of you know, I AM one of Catland’s in-store Readers, so I AM in Brooklyn, fairly often, and truly, no stranger to the MTA’s Transit system; taking buses and trains fairly often, usually every week, and sometimes, as many as four to five days a week.
Nonetheless, I happily took a bus into Midtown Manhattan, then a subway train to Brooklyn, and specifically, to the subway stop closest to where FlameCon was being held.
However, the Manhattan location this year means I do not need to take any additional mass transit. I can simply travel into Midtown Manhattan, NYC, then walk a few blocks to the hotel where FlameCon is being held.
Alas, because I have a previous engagement this month, I shall not be able to attend FlameCon 2018.
This is the reason why:
In any event, if you have the opportunity to attend FlameCon this year, or next year, I cannot over-recommend attending.

I recorded a video about this year’s FlameCon, in which I AM wearing the t-shirt for FlameCon 2017; I rarely wear printed t-shirts, but this one is my personal favorite!
Anyway, here is the video:
Remember you are beautiful, you are powerful, and you are sacred.
And good night!
