Megacon held two events in Florida recently raising $18,405.21 for Equality Florida, "a civil rights organization with a goal of full equality for Florida's LGBTQ+ community."
"We are so grateful for the fundraising event MegaCon hosted supporting our Honor Them With Action campaign that we launched in the aftermath of Pulse to uproot anti-LGBTQ discrimination and violence," said Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida. "The compassion and support shown by MegaCon and the contributors of the Love is Love comic anthology have been an inspiration."
Orlando's Megacon held a cocktail reception, book signing, and a live auction. Comic creators involved included Love is Love organizer Marc Andreyko, George Perez, Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Tee Franklin, Dan Didio, Cat Staggs, and Tom King.
The Eisner-winning Love is Love raised $165,000 earlier this year for victims of Orlando's Pulse nightclub shooting. The 144-page anthology was a collaboration between IDW Publishing and DC Comics.
