What is it? 

The NYC Queer Comic Fair the only fair in NYC geared entirely towards queer sequential art (comics, graphic novels, illustrated stories, photo-comics, or any other interesting take on the medium of still-visual narrative storytelling). The event is organized by WabiSabiZinez and Carmine Street Comics and hosted by BGSQD.

When and where is it? 

The event will be hosted by The Bureau of General Services Queer Division (BGSQD) on Saturday and Sunday, April 27th-28th, from 1-7pm each day. 

The Bureau of General Services Queer Division (BGSQD) is located on the second floor of The LGBT Center NYC (208 W 13th St).

How do I participate? 

Back this project at the vendor level to participate!

Tables are shared with each vendor getting about 2 1/2 ft. by 2 1/2 ft. Vendors will pay $40 for two days, with 100% of funds going to space, promotional materials, advertising, and Kickstarter fees.

Space is limited to sixteen vendors each day; however, the fair can run with a minimum of eight. As the event is organized through Kickstarter, if the eight vendor goal or $320 minimum is not met, no one will be charged and the event will not be held.

There are no refunds for vendors who cancel after the Kickstarter has ended.
