FAQ

What is TGIF/F, anyway?

TGIF/F (“TGI Femslash”) is a place for fans of various femslash ships to hang out and talk about them. It's like the internet in-person, we've been told. In addition to discussion panels, we also have events and games throughout the weekend to further bond with each other and celebrate what we love most: Gal Pals!

TGIF/F isn't a giant Comic-Con-type extravaganza with celebrities, autographs, and photo ops. (We love that stuff, but this is something else.) Instead, it's a smaller convention that provides a more intimate setting, focusing on rich discussions between fans and building a sense of community and camaraderie. Think of it like the difference between a giant university and a smaller college -- Our cap of 200 people means you won't get lost in the crowd and you'll get to know people well.

Can anyone attend?

You must be at least 18 years old (by the con’s start date) to attend TGIF/F.

Is this new?

New-ish! We're about to have our third convention. Planning began in 2015, and we had our first con in early 2016. It was born out of a previous event, FaberryCon, that was just completing its 4-year run. We had so much fun there, we expanded to a multifandom con to keep the good times going.

When will registration open?

Late summer / early fall. We'll get that information out to you as soon as it becomes available. (Reg will launch as part of a big website overhaul we're working hard on now.) In the meantime, put in your request for time off and stash away reg money!

How does the room block work?

Our hotel has blocked off an entire end of one floor just for us so we can keep our conversations (aka noise) away from the other hotel guests and keep our people together. When you register, you'll be able to let us know if you want in on that. We'll then work with you to find roommates and get you in the most cost effective and comfortable situation we can. We have to arrange booking directly with the hotel, so you'll coordinate with us and then we'll coordinate with them.

I want to talk about my favorite show! Will my fandom be represented?

We hope you will come talk about your favorite show, because there is almost definitely someone else (or twenty someones) who would love to discuss it with you. Only a few shows get dedicated panels unto themselves, but that doesn't mean we only talk about them. We discuss dozens of different shows at the con, so come get yours in the mix of conversation!

Will there be celebrities at the con?

We do not plan on inviting celebrities. That’s not what this con is about. It’s about us --the fans -- and what we have to say. We also wouldn’t want to skew the con toward a particular fandom by inviting an actor from that show. This is a multifandom convention.

I have concerns about accessibility and/or safety. What are your policies?

We’re glad you asked! Please see our Legal page.

I can’t attend! Will you have any kind of streaming video or similar so I can see the con?

Unfortunately, this is not something we can offer at this time.

I want to get involved! What can I do?

Get involved on social media! There is information about this in the "Community" section of our con info page. Also, tell your friends about the con!

If you are interested in joining the staff, email us and tell us what your skills are and what kind of position you have in mind.
