I tabled at the very first Flame Con before I was out of the closet. I was nervous to go to a queer comics show as a “straight girl who just thought lesbians were neat”, or whatever I was telling myself at the time, but the community was immediately welcoming, fun, and full of inspiration. Attending in later years, as an out queer person, has been a joy!
