Gaylaxicon is an annual science fiction, fantasy and horror convention that focuses on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender topics. It takes place in various locations in the United States, usually on the east coast.


Started in 1988 in Provincetown, Massachusetts, Gaylaxicon is organized by member organizations of the Gaylactic Network.

The Gaylaxian Science Fiction Society (GSFS) is the New England-based chapter of the Network, which organized the original convention and continues to be a driving force behind many of the Gaylaxicons. GSFS is a member of the New England Science Fiction Association (NESFA).

Spectrum awards

The Gaylactic Spectrum Awards are often awarded at Gaylaxicon, after a nomination and jury process managed by the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards Council, an independent organization.
