Citrus Con is being organized by a group of BL fans dedicated to giving the community a safe space to enjoy our shared interests. We feel there are not enough events of this kind, and we aim to change that.Con staff currently consists of 5 core members which includes the moderators from discord servers Citrus Squad and The Church of BL. We are working hard to maintain the same culture we maintain in our other online spaces. You can expect a safe, judgement-free event where everyone is welcome to express themselves authentically.We will be seeking to add more staff to our team, including volunteers to help as needed during the event.
