Gay sci-fi and gaming fans enjoyed three days of reveling in their world last weekend during a convention in Atlanta.
Organizers say about 150 people attended OutlantaCon, which offered panels, gaming, vendors and well-known guests. Author Andy Mangels (right photo), best known for his work in the “Star Trek” universe, actress Tucky Williams (top)—think zombie killer Vix in “Dead Moon Rising”—and Eric Watts (bottom photo), who directs “Star Trek” programming for DragonCon, were just a few of the well-known personalities on hand.

The weekend marked the first multi-day event for organizers, which hosted a one-day event last November. Up next for OutlantaCon is another one-day event set for Nov. 14.
