Tired of Diversity Tracks?These 9 Blerd Conventions are Exactly What You Need This Summer

If you’re a Black or Brown Nerd into comics, cosplay, gaming, anime or manga, you’re probably looking for a convention to attend this summer that actually cares about your interests. Maybe you’re not looking for a “diversity track” with panels all scheduled in the same time slot. Or being the one person representing your race, gender or orientation (God forbid, all three) in the same circular discussions of inclusion without action. Sometimes we just want a safe space to game, crossplay, or gush over our fave K-Pop bias without having to explain ourselves. Well, this little list of Blerd-run conventions is exactly what you need this summer.
