Comic book/geek conventions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are single day gatherings and others are multi-day events. They all have several things in common, cosplay, superheroes/villains, vendors with toys, books, original art, and a sense of community. That sense of community is the strongest at Bent-Con. Why? Because Bent-Con is a comic/geek convention that specifically caters to the LGBT community.
This will be year 5 for the convention and will take place at the Burbank Airport Marriot Hotel on November 7-9.
Like any other comic convention, there are plenty of panels about geekdom and other assorted subjects. The dealer’s room will be filled with vendors offering original art, erotic and sexy superhero prints, writers selling their novels, original gay themed comic books and possibly cosplay accessories. Other events include the costume contest, karaoke, film screenings and gaming.

This year, organizers are pleased to welcome author of the popular Vampire Chronicles series, Anne Rice to the convention. There will also be various comic book artist and other celebrities in attendance. The guest list can be found here,

Once the main dealer’s room is closed and the panels are over for the day, there are after parties to attend and a number of room parties that take place in the hotel. Lots of socializing, drinking and fun can be had at the convention.
This is an event for the LGBT community, but as always, those who are supporters, friends and/or relatives of the gay community are welcome to come and have fun.
This will be my second year attending the show and the main reason that I attended is to sell my three “Las Vegas Bandits” novels. (available on amazon.com) I may not sell as many books as I would like, but I know I will enjoy the experience. Last year I made new friends, talked to a lot of great people and had a great time. I look forward to seeing those current friends, meeting new ones and having a great time.

The following are some photos from last year’s Bent-Con
