Capital City Geek Girls is a fanclub for fangirls of all types who promote and produce geek girl-friendly events. The Comic Book Shoppe on Bank St is their official headquarters.

What are we doing there? We’ll be handing out information on how to be an effective bystander, giving out pins AND documenting your experiences of street harassment, both in general and specifically within Geek-spaces. (ie: PopExpo, ComicCons, gaming tournaments, etc).

In the spirit of the amazing work our sister site Philly is doing, we want to open up a conversation about safety for women and queer identified geeks! See below for a video compilation of CosPlayers discussing the harassment they experience in Geek Spaces.

See you at the Shoppe!
