ConFABulous LGBTQ+ friendly gaming and Science Fiction Convention
Gaylaxicon Minnesota / North Country Gaylaxians started ConFABulous in 2017 as an LGBTQ+ friendly gaming and Science Fiction Convention. The second ConFABulous is nearly here! Plans are proceeding apace for our convention OCTOBER 19-21, 2018. We are again at the CROWN PLAZA AIRE i3 Appletree Square, Bloomington, MN 55425 . We have expanded our space this year so that in addition to our panel room, where we’ll be offering panels of general interest on speculative fiction, our large gaming room (including board games and video games), and our Con Suite where you can pick up snacks (as well as our annual CHOCOLATE SYMPOSIUM on Saturday), we have a smaller panel room where we’ll be running RPGs (often with a preceding discussion of the RPG), and we will be offering a small dealer’s room. Check out our web site for a LIST OF THE PANELS that are in the works, a partial listing of the board games that will be available to learn and play, a listing of the RPG PANELS/DEMONSTRATION GAMES being offered, a list of local GUESTS OF INTEREST to our members, and a listing of our DEALERS. While there you can register for the convention and book a room at the hotel so you can stay up late for gaming. We hope to see you there at the con!

What we're about

The North Country Gaylaxians is the Twin Cities’ chapter of the Gaylactic Network (a national organization for GLBT people and their friends, who are interested in science fiction, fantasy, horror and gaming). We read and discuss Science Fiction / Fantasy / Horror and other speculative fiction with positive GLBT or similar content or by GLBT authors; have regular game nights; and sponsor panel discussions at conventions. Many of our books for discussion are taken from the Spectrum Award or Lambda Awards winners or short lists, but we are always open for suggestions. Our book discussions meet at the Quatrefoil Library at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. We also periodically host Gaylaxicon, a national GLBT science fiction, fantasy, horror and gaming convention that travels around the country.
