We were incredibly proud to partner with ClexaCon 2017 for their LGBTQ focused pop culture convention. We hosted a variety of panels including the opening panel for the convention, ‘Lexa’s Legacy’. Our members Tara Stuart and Jessica Kath also represented our organization on a number of other media focused panels, contributing comprehensive statistics for the important conversations surrounding LGBT representation in media. You can learn more about our panels below.
Our presence also included an information and merch booth, where attendees could chat with members of our team about our mission, sign up to volunteer and participate in exciting activities like our photo hunt and silent auction. Check out the pics below!
#LexasLegacy At Clexacon 2017
And that’s not all!
We’re in the process of designing an exclusive joint shirt with ClexaCon that will only be available at the convention. All proceeds from the shirt will go to charity. What will it look like? You’ll just have to wait and see!
Remember the Clexa Fanart Book? We’re taking that idea and creating a multi-fandom art book to be released at the convention. As with the shirt, all proceeds will go to charity. We’ll be looking for feedback in the coming weeks for artists to include as well as fandoms to be featured, so stay tuned!
As some of you have seen on our social media, we’ve been collecting signed items throughout the year from various celebrities. At ClexaCon, we’ll be holding an auction with some of these items with all proceeds going to charity. We’re still finalizing the specifics around the auction itself and we’ll share those with all of you once we’re ready!
