Through our differences we are united. Through our diverse powers we are strong. In a world where being different is too often seen as flaw, our tolerance and acceptance for all things fandom are an undeniable force for good. In a time when casting labels is easy, we are the seekers of truth. We are fans and this is Universal FanCon. Join us in stepping out of the shadows, because equality does not need to wear a mask. www.universalfancon.com 

I have seen Fancon pop up in a number of my feeds on disabilities, but that is not the theme of these event. In my readings, what I can assume this event is more about inclusion and acceptance no matter what and just have fun. If this is the case, these type of event should happen weekly.
