Austin’s no stranger to hosting first-time LGBT events. In just a year we’ve seen the Stargayzer Festival spring up, as well as the OUTsider Fest and right around the corner, making its debut this May, the Austin International Drag Festival. With music, film and performance covered, there seemed to be one thing missing, but wait no longer because sci-fi, fantasy, gaming and comic book enthusiast can now have their piece of the pie too with the first ever LGBTQIA geek and gaming convention, Haven Con.

Founded by Gay Austin Geek’s Shane Brown, the convention aims to bring the LGBT community and allies together for a weekend of gaming and a plethora of activities for both locals and industry professionals. Geeks and gamers will get to experience everything from cosplay contests and gaming tournaments to industry panels and special guests appearances by The Legend of Korra’s Janet Harvey (Korra) and P.J. Byrne (Bolin). But most importantly, what Shane Brown hopes to bring to the community is a “safe, entertaining and diversity-welcoming environment,” for all. And while the convention promises to be a fun and inclusive haven for gamers and geeks alike, Haven Con will also be doing its part for the community, with proceeds from the convention going to Austin nonprofit, Out Youth. Haven Con kicks off this weekend.
