HavenCon is a small ,community based, LGBTQIA+ multigenre fandom convention that takes place in Austin, Tx. 2022’s convention takes place April 22-24 at the Austin Marriott South.
Our programming focus on showcasing the amazing talents of LGBTQIA+ community and LGBTQIA+ affirming creators. We invite speakers in from around the country as well as offering space for community members to host panels of their own. This year we have authors, illustrators, podcasters, video game creators, and cosplayers joining us to talk about creating from an intersectional queer perspective. We also have a number of community panels that range from queer history and representation in different media, fanfiction, cosplay, dancing and more.
We also host a number of interactive events at the con; craft workshops with our quests, fandom and queer culture games, a cosplay showcase to show off you favorite costumes, a live shadow cast showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show, a drag show, and of course a tabletop gaming room for folks to get a chance to play some games with friends and make some new ones!
We are, at our core, a community of fans and creators supporting fans and creators. We work to promote queer content creators and to help inspire and empower those who are interested in becoming content creators themselves.
