• BABSCon Announces its 2020 Charities

    BABSCon is bringing on the usual charity stuff you've come to expect out of the, with two big targets for their 2020 convention.

    Head on down below the break to see who you get to support if you plan to hop on the charity train.

    We are overjoyed to announce that we will be supporting The Game Academy and the Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County as our charities for the 2020 convention! This year, each charity will be bringing something unique to the con.

    The Game Academy is an inclusive educational program for children 8 to 18 that uses tabletop and live action role-playing games to teach history, science, math, drama, English and life skills in a way that is engaging and fun. They’ll be bringing a plethora of tabletop RPGs for BABSCon attendees, both kids and adults, and teaching us all about how they use these games for education.

    The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County builds community and promotes well-being among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) people and their allies, including and especially LGBTQ+ youth. They’ll be on site at BABSCon helping us learn about diversity, gender expression, exploration & identity, and general LGBTQ+ inclusiveness. (Also, did someone say, “Drag Queen Storytelling”?) RCC serves the more conservative, outlying portions of the Bay Area, often in the face of animosity, so let’s show them the love and acceptance that is BABSCon.

    We couldn’t be prouder to help these wonderful local charities have a greater impact here in the SF Bay, so register now to come see them at BABSCon…but hey, you don’t wait until next April to check out and donate to these worthy causes!
