My Gay Tortonto - We Recommend

The Canadian Fan Expo

- BY Lee Fancy

The Canadian Fan Expo celebrates all things comic, anime, sci-fi, horror and gaming in its annual appearance at the Convention Centre. We know us “gays” follow these shows/movies, like a fat kid following an Oreo cookie. Many of my friends go and tell me how amazing it is to see these actors  and also hear them discuss the shows plots and themes. There is so much to do, most will spend the entire weekend there.

Take on other fans at a gaming tournament, take your own art portfolio in for review, or dress up as your favorite character. Retailers are also on hand selling popular and rare art and gaming equipment that sometimes can’t be found anywhere else.

Previous stars in attendance include comic legend Stan Lee, the original Batman Adam West, Star Trek‘s Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood and more.

This year’s guests include original Star Trek‘s George Takei and Nichelle Nichols; new Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban; Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus and Laurie Holden; former Superman Dean Cain; Firefly stars Morena Baccarin, Gina Torres and Nathan Fillion; Princess Leia herself Carrie Fisher and more
