If you’re a fan of color/non-white fan looking for a con to go to this summer, Con or Bust has memberships to two cons available for free:

First, thanks to an individual donation, Con or Bust has a free attending membership to LoneStarCon 3, this year’s WorldCon (August 29-September 2, San Antonio, Texas), available for transfer. This is available first-come first-served through July 10 only. (Voting rights have already been exercised.)

Second, Diversicon has donated a membership to Con or Bust. Diversicon takes place August 2-4, 2013 in Saint Paul, MN, USA; its guest of honor is Jack McDevitt, and its special guests are Catherine Lundoff and Roy C. Booth. As its name suggests, Diversicon emphasizes cultural diversity, diversity of fan groups, and diversity in media.

Request either membership at this Google Docs form. Thanks, and please spread the word!
