With eight days remaining in the Kickstarter campaign, Geeks OUT has surpassed its initial $15,000 goal to help fund Flame Con, “a super-queer comic con” to be held next year in New York City.
"We are over the moon with excitement!" the group said in a statement. " THANK YOU to all who have helped us take this huge step toward realizing such an ambitious goal."
As of this afternoon, the campaign has generated $16,641, which will go toward a venue, promotion, guests and incidentals (organizers also hope to secure corporate sponsorship). If it should reach $17,000, a VIP space will be added for those who donated more than $100; at $19,000, Flame Con will get its own video.
The Kickstarter campaign ends Dec. 4.
