Queercon 13 Events

All – Event is open to all ages
18+ – Event is open to only adults 18 and over

As always we do our best to make all of the Queercon Events open to as many people as we can, but it is Las Vegas, and finding locations that we are able to use sometimes requires us to have age limits.  This year we have worked even harder to make it so that everyone is welcome to our events.  Please note that many of our events serve alcohol, and you should carry your ID with you.
