A note from the always-fantastic Kate Nepveu, and of interest to fans of color who are thinking about attending Boskone next year, at which I will be a Guest of Honor:
As you know, I run Con or Bust, which helps fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF cons, and in a couple of weeks I’m going to start taking requests from people who want to go to cons in January, February, and March 2012–such as Boskone.
The how-to-request-assistance post is here: http://con-or-bust.livejournal.com/87208.html, and requests will be taken from Nov. 15-25. (Also, people can donate at any time here: http://con-or-bust.livejournal.com/29389.html, even outside the auction that’s the main fundraiser (which will be in mid-February this year as well).)
There you have it. If you have an interest in participating in this, or in helping fans of color come to conventions through a donation, just follow those links above.
