Isn’t it highly unusual for a convention to kickstart the funds they need to operate? Isn’t that what the proceeds from ticket sales are for?

There is an old saying in fan conventions staff people…

“How to make a small fortune in fandom: Start with a large fortune and then run a convention.”

Judging by the logo Bent-Con is a kids tv show about a blue spotted monster.

Darn, no $17,000 “extra hour in the ball pit” reward.

In all seriousness, I suspect that much of the problem that they’re having with fundraising is due to DashCon. Tumblr is full of LGBT fans and creators, but once bitten, twice shy.
