Genderfloomp is an event at WisCon (the world's leading feminist science fiction convention) that seeks to explore and expand concepts of gender via dance party. DJ Buckminster Fuller and special guests, including DJ Charlie Jane Anders and VJs Annalee Newitz, and Genevieve Valentine, will keep the party going all night—or at least until the hotel kicks us out. Gender play/blurring/queering/drag, both in dress and manner, is highly encouraged, but in no way required.
The next Genderfloomp is tentatively planned for WisCon 38 on Memorial Day Sunday 2014 in the Madison Concourse Hotel in Madison, Wisconsin. The event is generally held in the Assembly Room (on the first floor all the way to the left).
