Month: August 2019

FlameCon2019 Starts Tomorrow!!!


I AM so happy that I shall have the honor and pleasure of returning to FlameCon, the premier LGBTQ comic con, tomorrow, Saturday, August 17, 2019.

This is the place to explore and learn about people of the LGBTQIAPlus Community who are life-long geeks, nerds, and who happen to have a direct connection to comic books, queer literature, etc.

Recently, while going through some of the bins in my apartment, I found my copy of Geeks Out Present Power, dated June, 2015, edited by John Curtis Jennison Jr.  And yes, I plan on reading it prior to this weekend’s FlameCon2019.  It is a short read (98 pages), so I should be done in time.

In the meantime, based on one of the most recent Emails I received from GEEKS OUT, more than sixty per cent of all the tickets have been sold, and tickets continue to sell.

I AM also looking forward to making quick videos on my YouTube Channel about my experiences at this weekend’s FlameCon2019.

The vast majority of my videos on my YouTube Channel, are of a Metaphysical, Magickal, and Mystical theme.  However, there are a few that fall under the LGBTQIAPlus category, such as the videos I did when I was at “Bear Your Soul: Summer Camp” in August, 2018, as well as when I participated in “Spirit of the Bear,” which was co-produced by Bear Your Soul and PawedNYC.

You can check out all my YouTube videos by visiting:

Just like last year, this year’s FlameCon is being held at the Sheraton Times Square, located West 53rd Street and 7th Avenue in the Midtown section of Manhattan, NYC.

Before I close, here is a short test video (I rarely, if ever, use my smartphone to record videos to upload to my YouTube Channel, so I needed my awesome audio-visual person to help me).

 

 

 

 

May the Universe bring you great Joy, great amounts of Riches, and great PRIDE (along with great geekiness, nerdiness, and queerness, too).

Less Than Three Weeks to FlameCon 2019


I began writing this blog post on Sunday, July 28, and completed writing it on Saturday, August 3, 2019, exactly two weeks before the first day of FlameCon 2019.

This year, I have the honor and pleasure of returning to attend FlameCon, the premier LGBTQ, or, rather, LGBTQIAPlus comic con!

As you may recall, the last time I attended FlameCon was back in 2017, when it was still being held in the Borough of Brooklyn, NYC.

However, after the 2018 FlameCon, it grew so big, that the powers-that-be at FlameCon needed to use a larger venue, so they went from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

Ironically, their first year in Manhattan, I had a previous engagement: namely, “Bear Your Soul: Summer Camp,” in August, 2018.

More than anything else, I AM looking forward to the panel discussions, and I must admit, looking forward to staying in the host hotel; it almost feels like a mini-vacation to me!

However, I AM looking forward to doing some quick videos about my experiences at FlameCon for my YouTube Channel.  You can visit:

I AM going to keep this post short and sweet.
