2018 Con

Thank you to the 111 attendees who made our third con incredible!

The third annual TGIF/F was held in Orange County, CA on February 15-17, 2018. 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:

    – ANGST!!
    – Can You See Me Now?
    – Feminism Onscreen
    – I’ll Never Let Go, Jack!
    – Incremental Progress
    – Intersectionality in Femslash
    – Interracial Fandom
    – Make it GAY!
    – The Perks & Pitfalls of Canon vs Fanon (the sequel)
    – Polyamory is for Everyone!
    – History is Gay
    – Social Media and Fandom
    – Writing Femslash
    – Vidshow Review
    – Women & Femslash in Science Fiction
    – Writing Concepts
    – TGIF/F Reflections

  • 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 eight 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.)

    – The Bold Type
    – The Good Place
    – Legend of Korra
    – One Day at a Time
    – Professor Marston and the Wonder Women
    – Star Wars
    – Supergirl
    – Wynonna Earp
