ClexaCon News: first day “The Badge Pick-up Party”

ClexaCon is a media and entertainment convention for LGBTQ+ women, trans and non-binary fans and creators.

Today was the day we could all cool off at the Tropicana Pool for all the fans, talent and press to pick up their badges.  Pool party games were put on by Queer Field Day.  DJ Chyld and DJ Aravi gave us some live pool tunes.  Even Mermaid Kristin Sparkle was in attendance

Held annually since 2017, with events in Las Vegas (2017, 2018, 2019, 2021), as well as a pop-up convention in London (2018), and virtual events during the pandemic (2020, 2021). The event has drawn attendees from over 45 countries and every U.S. state.

ClexaCon hosts panels, workshops, celebrity photograph and autograph sessions and meet & greets, charity events, pool parties, evening parties, nightly entertainment and film festivals. Join actresses, directors, producers, writers, voice actors, authors, comic book artists, fan artists, academics and attendees from around the world to celebrate the best of LGBTQ+ TV, film, books and media and continue the push for better representation for our communities across the media.

We hope you’ll join us, don’t be shy  https://purchase.growtix.com/eh/ClexaCon_2021
