LGBTQ Initiative for Worldcon 76

Chuck Serface has launched the LGBTQ Initiative with the intention of funding 50 memberships to Worldcon 76. So far, the initiative has raised enough money to fully fund seven memberships.

Funded memberships are available to SF/F fans and professionals who identify as LGBTQ. Applicants should send an email to lgbtqworldcon@gmail.com with a personal statement under 500 words including information about themselves and why they want to attend Worldcon. Applications will be reviewed and attendees chosen by Serface. Worldcon 76 will be held August 16-20, 2018 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose CA.

For more information, including instructions on how to either apply for or donate to the fund, see Serface’s blog.
