Flamey is #FlameCon‘s mascot. In the pre conference materials sent to press FlameCon explained to reporters that we should not assume to know the gender of attendees. They said we should always ask what pronoun’s to use and gave the example that when referring to the conference mascot we should use the pronouns “they/their/theirs”.

Some of the gender pronoun stickers we could use. Also included an “Ask Me” option. Wonderful!
