Last year, when I heard of Flamecon, as it was described to me: Comicon for the gays (lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, and queer), I was super upset to know that it was a one day event happening just down the street from where I would be singing an engagement at the Brooklyn Museum for the Tyler Clementi foundation. It was a very important concert that focused on the seriousness of cyber bullying performed by none other than the New York City Gay Men's Chorus, with whom I am a member. The chorus geeks and gaymers, as we call ourselves, all tried to think of ways in which we could finish the concert and then make it out to Flamecon. It was no use. The call time was too late, the show was an hour and a half, then we would have to change out of our clothes, go somewhere to prepare any cosplay, because you know we would do it, and then find our way to the venue where Flamecon was, buy tickets, get in, and enjoy. It was just too much.
So that October, one of our chorus DMs, Dennis, posted, in a secret group, that Flamecon 2 tickets were available and that we should all cash in on the great deal they were having: just 35 dollars for a weekend pass, including the party. We all purchased our tickets and laughed: "It's so far off... Summer 2016? Ok, gurl..."
Fast forward to the end of July. The 2015-16 season has just wrapped up, and we're all on choral vacation! We had just returned
