Why a “Blerd” Con?
Blerdcon is an event that highlights and celebrates Blerd culture and creates a marketplace of ideas where sharing that culture can take place with proper context, attribution and positivity in an inclusive environment.
Blerdcon is derived from the term “Blerd” which is short for black nerd. Blerd culture encompasses creatives, fans, producers who are and have been contributing to every fandom, but don’t get the recognition or notoriety.
Blerdcon celebrates our connection with LGBTQ, the disabled, POCs and the international community! All are welcome to partake in the experience as we are an open community who love all the same nerddom. Some of our many events include:
- Celebrity Guests
- Gaming Tournaments
- Cosplay Contests
- Cosplay Guests
- Music and Dance
- Anime Screenings
- Maid Cafe
Made for you!
A Fully Inclusive Convention Experience
Guests of Color
Nerds with disabilities are ignored way too often. Not only do they deserve to enjoy the nerd universe at the same level as anyone else, but they’ve proven that they are leading contributors to geek culture. This is proven by the incredible guests with disabilities that we’ll be showcasing this year at the Blerdcon Reunion 2018!
