Why a "Blerd" Con?
The world of geekdom has been burgeoning for decades. It is no longer a small universe wherein
only handful of nerds exist. Geekdom has grown to become more universal – whether you’re into
anime, comic books, sci-fi, gaming or cosplay, there’s a con out there for you.
Despite the rapid growth of the nerd universe, however, conventions have failed to proportionately represent the expansive minority nerd audience. Fans of all backgrounds and cultures are embracing their inner nerd. This includes POC (Black, Asian, Latino, etc.), women, disabled, LGBTQ and many more types of nerds across the globe. This is where BlerDCon comes in.
For those who don’t know, “Blerd” is an acronym for Black nerd; this has become a phrase embraced by minority nerds of all backgrounds, no matter what their skin color. The word blerd has evolved to become a symbol of unity for all nerds; BlerDCon is a team of lifetime geeks that has rallied around this concept to create a con for all.
