A weekend of fun and educational activities for LGBTTTQQIAA HS youth hosted by students at a small university in Maine

Woohoo folks we are having a year of amazing LGBTQ+ events in Washington County, ME, see the timeline below ‘BLAZE’!! The Machias Rainbow Con has some wicked good events including a midnight movie showing of the original Rocky Horror Picture Show with help from talented Emcees from the Barn Arts Collective guaranteeing plenty of audience partici…..pation. Once we cover our costs, any additional ticket sales are donations for the Rainbow Ball Weekend, feel free to support us!

Our Celebrity guest on Saturday is none other than the Magdalena Visaggio, author of Kim & Kim comic books, one of the Kims is trans and the other is bi! She’ll be presenting on her work as a trans comic book author, selling her books, and giving autographs. We are also hosting the first gallery show of Kevin Dutil’s beautiful drawings of his  GLBTQ Super Heroes also opening the same weekend!

There is much much more: LARPing, Tourneys, Shakespeare’s Star Wars Readers Theater, Cosplay Contest, live music, and a Zombie Fun Run! It’s a beautiful time to visit our coastal area. We’re rustic, gritty, and small but we have really big hearts. Come on out you awesome nerds!
