Voting has opened on Bent-Con’s Gay Geek Flag contest.

Bent-Con, an LGBT geek/pop culture organization that holds a convention each fall, recently called on fans to submit designs for a flag reflecting queer geek Pride.

The designs are in, and voting is open on the Bent-Con Facebook page until June 1. (Votes are cast with Facebook “likes” in the Facebook photo gallery.)

Bent-Con plans to make the winning design into a flag to be used at the L.A. Pride festival and Pride parade.
