San Diego Comic-Con is a sprawling wonderland of comics, toys, games and entertainment. But no matter what else you do at the Con, you must make time to visit the heart and soul of gay comics fandom: Prism Comics. The Prism booth is the headquarters for gay fans. You can get all the latest info on gay comics, meet creators and mingle with other fanboys and fangirls. But you know what’s even more fun than just hanging out at the Prism booth? Volunteering at the Prism booth! I’ll be there off and on during the course of the convention, along with Prism’s amazing (and attractive) staff and volunteers. It’s a great way to meet people, learn more about gay comics culture and help out a fabulous organization. Here’s the scoop on volunteering:
Volunteers will greet people and answer questions about Prism Comics. Don’t worry! Prism will provide you with information sheets. You’ll get to help sell books, assist with creator signings and be an ambassador for gay comics! Volunteer time slots are approximately two hours long at various times from Wednesday, July 22 through Sunday, July 26, so you’ll still have lots of time to see and do everything on your agenda. Prism is also looking for volunteers to help at two fabulous after-Con parties: a Womens’ Comic-Con Night Dance Party at Rich’s Dance Club on Thursday, July 23 and a Men’s Comic-Con Night Dance Party at Rich’s on Friday, July 24.
If you are going to Comic-Con and want to volunteer or would like more information, please write to Ted, your friendly Prism Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
1) Your home and/or cell phone number.
2) Which day(s) you are attending Comic-Con.
You will be sent a schedule of volunteer times. Since Comic-Con is sold out, Prism cannot provide passes for volunteers. If you have friends who are coming to the Con and might like to volunteer, please spread the word. You don’t have to be gay to apply! So let your gay-friendly comic book friends know, as well! Read more about Prism at their website! See you at the Prism booth!
P.S. Tell them FBOTU sent you!
