I don't know much about this, but I saw it in MTPC's newsletter (http://www.icontact-archive.com/a3pl2DehLErMRaYi3ELGrbnrAzlpgpde?w=2)
and appreciated that it was explicitly and strongly inclusive of "fat folks". For some reason this doesn't say it, but the con is August 17th through 19th in Baltimore MD. As a femme myself, and a not so included one, I am quite tempted -- but I probably already have enough cons etc. this year (I know, and it's only February!).

Femme2012: Pulling the Pieces Together
A multi-threaded conference and forum for those who think about, talk about, and create Femme as a queer gender and identity. Following our Femme2006, 2008, and 2010 conferences in San Francisco, Chicago, and Oakland, where hundreds of femmes and allies gathered for workshops, panels, films, visual art galleries, and performances, we again invite femmes of all kinds and their allies to continue the conversation by participating in Femme 2012 as presenters and participants. Links to our online submission forms are here.
Submissions of all kinds are welcome, particularly submissions by femmes. We are committed to having our presenters reflect as many different voices from within our Femme community(ies) as possible. We aim to prioritize and centralize the experiences of historically marginalized groups, including but not limited to people of color, working-class people, fat folks, trans and gender-non-conforming people, elders, youth, previously incarcerated individuals, people without documentation, and people with dis/abilities. The submission deadline is April 15, 2012. For information about specific submissions requirements and to submit your proposal, please visitwww.femme2012.com.
