2017 Con

Thank you to the 104 attendees who made our second con even bigger and better than the first!

The second annual TGIF/F was held in Los Angeles, CA on April 7-9, 2017. We had a fantastic lineup of femslash panels and events over three days.

  • Multifandom & Meta Panels
  • Single Fandom Panels
  • Events and Games
  • Multifandom & Meta Panels

    Our panels are 50-minute, open group discussions moderated by one or two attendees. The con had two panel rooms running side by side for most of the weekend, providing choice and more opportunities for attendees. Registered attendees nominated and voted on their panel choices. These made the cut:

    – Crossovers, AUs, & Headcanons — Oh my!
    – Diversity and Representation in Media
    – Fake Dating: We Love It For Real
    – Femslash in Comics
    – Finding Truth in Fiction
    – Genesis of a Femslash Fandom
    – Religion, Magic, & Representation in Fantasy
    – The Massive Ef/fect of Femslash in Video Games
    – Power Dynamics in Femslash
    – Retro Femslash & Queer Lady Media Herstory
    – TGIFF: Thank God I Found Fandom
    – Why CAN’T Waverly Be the Heir: A Look at Leading Ladies
    – Writing Femslash

  • Single Fandom Panels

    While many ships and shows get covered in general multifandom panels, some are so popular that they deserve their own conversations. We set aside time in the schedule for four this year, which were voted in by our attendees. Conversation weren’t limited to just one ship (or the most popular one), but instead a celebration and discussion of everything that makes these shows what they are. (Except Mon-El, fuck that guy.)

    – Legend of Korra
    – Steven Universe
    – Supergirl
    – Wynonna Earp

  • Events and Games
