Because Warrior Princesses never die, AfterEllen.com is going to the Xena: Warrior Princess convention in Burbank, CA this weekend.
I covered it last year, and interviewed lesbian icons and Hot 100 hotties Lucy Lawless (Xena) and Renee O’Connor (Gabrielle). I also live-blogged the entire convention on my own blog, and one day looked up from my little laptop in the convention hall to find that 10,000 Xena fans had dropped by to follow along.
In recognition of the undying Xena love, AfterEllen.com’s going to let me live-blog it here this year — and yes, I’ll also be interviewing Lucy and Renee, and yes, I’ll have photographer KT Jorgensen with me. We’ll be taking photos, interviewing fans, and hopefully getting a chance to talk to some of the creative folks behind the show about issues near and dear to our hearts. We’ll also be at Lucy’s sold-out concerts at Hollywood’s legendary Roxy Theater, but alas — no wireless there. We’ll recap it after the fact, instead.
Live-blogging will start here on the AfterEllen.com blog on Friday morning, January 25 and run through the afternoon of Sunday, January 27. If you have questions for any of the guests, feel free to post them in the comments section and if I get a chance, I’ll ask them for you.
I’ve also told Lucy and Renee I’ll be doing this, so who knows? Maybe I can get them to drop by, too.
And if you’re going to be in Burbank, come say hi! I’ll be the tall one with the laptop.
