Los Angeles 4/7: TGIFemslash Convention

Posted by

TGIF/F is a multi-fandom, femslash convention designed to build connections, encourage discussion, and celebrate the media and characters we love.

Founded in 2015, TGIF/F provides a safe space for online friends to meet in person and foster new relationships across fandoms both young and old. We celebrate many different kinds of relationships between women, whether officially established onscreen or celebrated by fans through subtext. Together, our voices demonstrate a true demand for femslash representation in media. And best of all, the community we build creates lifelong relationships and a true sense of belonging.
