Hi! My name is Sophie, I’m 17 and I live in Romania, a country that is against those of us who don’t label ourselves as “straight”. Some of you know that I’ve recently come out to my dad. This is the first time EVER that he didn’t mock the lgbtq+ community when I told him that the Love Fan Fest con in Barcelona, Spain would be held in June, 2019 and that it was going to be an lgbtq+ themed comic con. I simply adore Melanie Scrofano (aka Wynonna Earp) and Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe on Legends of Tomorrow) and meeting them as well as Dominique Provost-Chalkley and Kat Barrell would mean so much to me! My dad’s been in and out of surgeries (he’s had a kidney stone) and financially, we’re really not in a good place so unless I raise enough (I’ve got a sum saved but it’s not even close to the price of plane tickets, hotels and so on), there is no option for me to meet my top favorite people of all time, people who have made me smile when I was at my lowest. I’ve never been to a con before and I can just hope that the Earpers and the LOT fandom, that I’m both part of, will do their thing :) It would be a dream come true!
