GAMMA.CON’S ANTI-HARASSMENT POLICY
GAMMA.CON has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to: stalking; intimidation; offensive verbal comments; physical assault and/or battery; harassing or non-consensual photography or recording; sustained disruption of panels, signings and other events; bathroom policing; inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome physical attention.
In relation to, but not limited to race, colour, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, age, body size, disability, appearance, religion, citizenship, pregnancy.
If a person engages in harassing behaviour, GAMMA.CON Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from GAMMA.CON with no refund. Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Fans (Attendees), Speakers, Guests, Media, Staff, Volunteers and Security are all subject to our anti-harassment policy.
Anyone can report harassment. If someone’s behaviour has made you uncomfortable or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact GAMMA.CON’s Security Team, Staff Member or Volunteer. You may also come to GAMMA.CON’s Show Office.
If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of GAMMA.CON.
Remember: Cosplay is not consent. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another GAMMA.CON Fan, always ask first and respect that person’s right to say no. When at GAMMA.CON, be respectful, be nice, be cool and be kind to each other.
GAMMA.CON’s mission is to create a fun, safe, welcoming, awesome event where Fans of all kinds can come together and celebrate. We want you to not only have the most amazing weekend ever, but to experience it in an environment where you are safe and accepted. As Fans ourselves, we understand the importance of creating a safe space for everyone who attends GAMMA.CON.
