A different kind of fandom deserves a different kind of convention.
ClexaCon will unite LGBTQ women to celebrate queer female characters and stories, connecting fans, celebrities, creators, panelists, journalists, and artists at a party so highly anticipated that VIP tickets sold out in two minutes.
Celebrating representations of LGBTQ women in all genres, the exciting ClexaCon line-up includes Lost Girl’s Zoie Palmer (Lauren) and Rachel Skarsten (Tamsen); Wynonna Earp’s Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly) and Katherine Barrell (Nicole); South of Nowhere’s Gabrielle Christian (Spencer) and Mandy Musgrave (Ashley); All My Children’s Eden Riegel (Bianca) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Maggie); Saving Face’s Lynn Chen (Vivian) and Michelle Krusiec (Wil); from The L Word and Skirtchasers, Elizabeth Keener; from Fringe and Suicide Kale, Jasika Nicole; from Bomb Girls and Lost Girl, Ali Liebert; and from Pariah and South of Nowhere, Aasha Davis.
ClexaCon is named in honor of Clarke and Lexa (‘Clexa’) from the CW’s The 100. When fan favorite Lexa was killed — the first example of the ‘Bury Your Gays’ trope that year — members of the queer community responded by raising awareness about the trope, plus $162,550 (as of this writing) for The Trevor Project. ClexaCon is honored to also be donating a portion of its proceeds to this national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth.
Any actor who has played LGBTQ knows that queer female fans are devoted and loyal, and ClexaCon is the first convention catering specifically to them. It is a place where we can interact with the biggest stars and learn from the brightest minds.
ClexaCon is a celebration of the characters and stories that have provided comfort and support for the queer community, and that have even — figuratively and often literally — saved lives.
