Founder and Organizer of the Gay Austin Geeks – Shane Brown has worked to bring all of the LGBTQIA+ geeks and gamers from around the Austin area together to build a community of like minded individuals that can come together to enjoy the things they are passionate about in a safe and inviting environment. Shane has been very proud to be a part of such a diverse and amazing community within the Gay Austin Geeks and other groups. He has seen first hand the benefit of being with those that you relate to, and wishes to continue this for all of the state of Texas and surrounding regions with HavenCon. It is this feeling of community, the ability to break down barriers simply by showing love for the things that people are passionate about, whether they are comics, video games, Doctor Who or other science fiction and fantasy that drives Shane to make this an event that everyone will be proud of. He has seen the way peoples eyes light up when talking about their favorite geeky topics, and this has brought more happiness than he could ever express. Shane welcomes you to HavenCon – This safe place for all geeks, gamers, cosplayers, and everything in between. Because everybody truly does need a Haven.
