“Bent-Con’s mission is to create an active and supportive space for LGBTQ creative community,” Viktor Kerney, Bent-Con’s Director of Outreach, told The Huffington Post. “It’s the fastest-growing convention supporting LGBTQ geek culture. It is also a celebration of the LGBTQ contributions to the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres seen in comics, movies, games, literature and technology.”
