The Kirk/Spock Slash Convention

Frequently Asked Questions

I have an awesome idea for a panel, game, or other fannish activity...

That's great and we would love to hear it. Send us a message via the contact form or by email: conchairs @ kiscon . org

I have never been to a convention before and plan to come alone. Help, will I feel awkward if I don't know anyone?

KiScon is a warm and welcoming place with attendees from all over the globe. Some have been around since the earliest days of K/S, others only discovered K/S through the reboot movies, some found us via Tumblr. Con newbies are very welcome and can expect a lovely and diverse community without peer pressure. If you still feel unsure, get in touch with the concom and we will find you a con buddy among our members.

Can I bring my dog / rat / pet weasel / dragon?

Unless it's an official assistance dog with proper training, we are afraid you can't bring your pet along. (Yes, that also includes emotional support dragons. Sadly.) We love animals, but we also need to ensure everyone's safety. If you have an official assistance dog, please get in touch with us in advance.

Can I still support the con even if I can't make it to the event in person?

Yes, you can get a Supporting Membership. This not only helps us run this convention as smoothly as possible, but also means you get a goodie bag with the vid show, the con zine, and other lovely things. Admittedly, that's not quite as awesome as being there in person, but you can be assured of our gratitude and appreciation. If you would like to be mentioned on the website / in the con zine on our list of supporting members, please let us know under which fannish name. Supporting memberships also make for a beautiful gift. Just saying.

Can I bring my child?

The con-chairs discussed this at length, and, sadly, we came to the conclusion that we can't allow children at the convention. As the mum of a young K/S fan, T'Lara thinks this sucks, but we don't want to get into legal troubles. We don't want to censor content at the convention: all fanworks are welcome at KiScon and all topics of discussion; this might include sensitive or explicit content. Therefore we can't allow people under the age of 18 at the con.

Where can I find and follow you on social media?

KiScon is represented on Tumblr and Facebook. We also post our updates and progress reports in the K/S communities on LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, Slack, and Discord.
