Geek "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun..."

Michelle, one of Dragonflight's dungeon masters (or is it "dungeon mistress?"), posed in her GeekGirlCon T-shirt. 

During my chat with Michelle, I asked her, "What is GeekGirlCon?"

Her answer was strikingly similar to the lead question on the site's FAQ page:

GeekGirlCon is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness of and celebrating the contribution and involvement of women in all aspects of the sciences, science fiction, comics, gaming and related Geek culture through conventions and events that emphasize both the historic and ongoing contribution and influence of women in this culture. We are having our first annual convention on October 8th and 9th at the Seattle Center Northwest Rooms in 2011.

And if attending this new convention isn't enough for you, Steamcon, now celebrating it's third year, will be held the following weekend.

Looks like October will be a busy month for us geeks.
