About Us

Queercon started 10 years ago as a hacker party inside of the annual Defcon hacker conference. Over the decade Queercon has grown into the largest social network of LGBT hackers from around the world.  We continue to grow and now focus on outreach to the LGBT community within the IT Security and Hacker Spaces.

Our basic belief is that there’s more queers in geekdom than most people might think, so if we can meet a few of them, maybe make a few new friends, that sounds sweet to us.  Of course, anyone queer-friendly is equally welcome, and cheers to you.
