Well, hey there, Lois McMaster Bujold, ACTUAL FANS OF COLOR in those photos BEFORE the Internet. How the hell could that be?

I'm sure they were dragged along by well-meaning white friends. The same way all the women are there with their boyfriends. And the boyfriends are all in another room.

Perhaps it's the same one FoC over and over again wearing a clever series of sock-puppet-like masks. I heard that totally happens, like, a lot.

Ancestors? I'm either in or just out of frame for a pretty large number of those.

I'm counting myself among them, believe me.

argh this is like such a flashback to when i was fourteen and reading bjo trimble's "on the good ship enterprise" and wishing i could go back in time just so i could go to real trek convention from the 70's. i had strange priorities when i was fourteen. and... now. yes.
