"Since several of the late summer / early fall conventions in the D.C. metro area will not be happening this year, the Virginian crew (Kerguelen, Twin2BJ, & Nat who is an honorary Virginian) decided to step in and fill the gap. The Southern Gathering is a multimedia slash convention. All fandoms will be recognized, even those that make the con com squick. We are trying to ensure that there is a variety to be seen and a good time to be had by all."
