Like a beacon to comic and pop culture-lovers everywhere, Comic-Con is drawing throngs of people to San Diego.
So many people attend Comic-Con, the world’s largest comic convention, that tickets got snapped up within an hour and a half of going on sale in March. (And don’t even ask what San Diego hotel rooms are going for!)
For LGBT geeks lucky enough to get in to the convention, which begins tonight and runs through Sunday, there are plenty of LGBT-oriented panels and events to check out. Prism Comics, a nonprofit that supports LGBT comics, creators and readers, rounded up the most LGBT-relevant content (including many events in which Prism plays a part) in its “Gay Agenda.”
Thursday, July 24
Friday, July 25

If you couldn’t get tickets or you prefer your cons a little less crowded, you can find a pop culture convention closer to home this fall: Stan Lee’s Comikaze is Halloween weekend and the LGBT convention Bent-Con is November 7-9.
