Most comic-cons are more queer than a pride festival. Of course the main cause is comics and genre works, but I guarantee there will be a lot of hot nerdy LGBTers to geek out with while running into top comic artists, actors from Buffy, The Walking Dead and Firefly, the iconic Bruce Campbell, and the man himself, Stan Lee.
Queer geek central will be the Saturday 3pm presentation by Portland’s own queer pop culture guru Andy Mangels. Andy will showcase a look at the history of Filmation, the classic animator of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Fat Albert, the Groovy Ghoulies and He-Man. In addition to his Filmation expertise, Andy has written official novels for Star Trek and Star Wars and had his work featured in DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics and produced a ton of cool DVDs.
