Any other GC fans going to Worldcon in Dublin? There’s already things I’ve seen on the schedule that make me want to stand outside in my AHF t-shirt but not brave enough to do it alone!

There seems to be an emphasis this time on queer/non binary/trans writing issues...cosplay doesn’t bother me at all because it’s dressing up!

Or is it cosplay you're objecting to as you've seen pictures?
There's always some awesome cosplayers at conventions, sometimes females wearing male costumes (I know someone who does Dr Who and is female, looks awesome as Matt Smith)
or the other way round where males cosplay characters.

The sci fi convention?
Why is a sci fi convention a place to all gather with your adult human female t-shirts?
Everyone can go to sci fi conventions, people from all walks of life love them!
Wish I was closer, love a good one and that looks huge..

Posted too soon. Didn't know it was on. AFAICR Robin Hobb was meant to be attending it, but had to cancel :( I'd have gone if she was there just to gawk admiringly at her Grin
