Dragon Con Atlanta 2022
Dragon Con Atlanta is the city’s perfect excuse to dress as their favorite superheroes and animated princesses during the Labor Day Weekend attracting over 80,000 visitors.
Dragon Con Atlanta bills itself the largest multi-media, pop culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe. The event brings together fans across multiple genres including literature, television & movies, comics and gaming, for 5 days of fun in one single convention.
For many Dragon Con fans, the quality of the cosplay and costuming distinguishes this one convention from all the others. Over the years, Labor Day weekend has become a four-day parade of the finest costumes that fans from across the country can muster, many bringing several costumes so that they have something different to wear each day of the convention.
Cosplayers tend to save their best for the nighttime, though, promenading through the hotel lobbies and posing for photos. The gay bars and clubs of Atlanta are packed with hot sexy super heroes and villains and many host special theme nights and special events including the Spectrum Party, the Superhero Underwear party and the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Live. There are also special LGBTQ panels at the convention during the 4 days.

Map of Gay Atlanta
The Atlanta gay population lives, works and plays all over the city and even into the suburbs. Midtown has several of the city’s most popular gay bars like Blake’s, Burkhart’s Pub, Bulldogs and Swinging Richards. The Atlanta LBGT populace is also partially responsible for the resurgence of Grant Park in the 1980s. The historic neighborhood was falling into ruins when members of the community started scooping up properties, renovating and restoring them to their original glory. This fever pitch trickled over into the neighborhoods of East Atlanta, Ormewood Park and the Old Fourth Ward. These are all eclectic, funky and tolerant neighborhoods, like most of Atlanta.
