“It is a privilege to be able to hold a Convention of this stature in Australia in particular for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community” says Executive Officer for United L Events, Julie Anderson.  “The L Word’s large and loyal fan base is passionate about the show and its characters, as evidenced by the expressed interest to attend and previous Conventions held abroad, they are excited about the prospect of attending this inaugural event.”

Anderson said “The L Word Down Under Convention will provide an opportunity for fans to get up close and personal with the actors from the show.” ” Fans will be able to ask the actors of The L Word a question about themselves or the show, be photographed with their favourite actor, have a chance to get their autograph as well as meet other attendees from across Australia and abroad.”

In six seasons, The L Word has generated a devoted audience as well as critical praise for its provocative, sexy storylines, and the outstanding performances of the principal cast.  The groundbreaking series follows a group of Los Angeles based friends as they navigate careers, families, friendships, inner struggles and romantic entanglements.   Since its debut, the series has become part of a global popular culture, generating its own social networking site (Ourchart.com), dedicated fan web sites and blogs, together with L Word ancillary products.
