Welcome to GeekGirlCon 2011!
As we open the doors for the first-ever GeekGirlCon, we signify October 8, 2011 as a landmark day for geeks. Created by geeky women for geeky women, GeekGirlCon strives to serve a diverse spectrum of geeks and nerds. You may be a Trek fanatic; an amazing fx artist; a Linux coder; a scientist, mad or otherwise; a hardcore gamer; a fanfic writer; a LARPer; a genre reader; or a casual fan of something geeky. All self-identified geeks are welcome here to honor and celebrate the contributions and interests of women geeks—regardless of gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, alien species, number of twitter followers, or other identifier heaped upon us by society.
So come on in and let yourself bask in the geekiness. Learn something new and meet someone new. GeekGirlCon, the event, may happen just once a year, but we’re creating a network and community to support us the rest of the year. As Sarah Conner says, “There is no fate, but what we make.” We can change the landscape for geek girls, and it starts now. By adding your unique geekery, you have helped make this dream a reality.
Enjoy your time here now and watch for exciting news about the 2012 con and all our other events happening throughout the year!
Live Long and Prosper,
