Teen Wolf Conventions! (A MasterPost)

With so many Teen Wolf conventions popping up this year (and next!), we thought it would be a good idea to start a big post with all of the current information we have on these events. We’ll be keeping this post updated and will reblog when new information is received. 

Also, you can visit our “TW Cons” tag to see other posts on these conventions!

As always, you guys can always visit our Teen Wolf Events page for more links to the websites and the conventions’ social media pages!

Former NFL player Wade Davis on coming out in sports
  • Wade Davis:I believe that it's okay to be gay and play sports or be a rapper or an actor. I just think we're moving in that direction. I can't say it's in the next five or ten years, but I definitely think it's on the horizon.
  • Amy K. Nelson:Does it have to be the quarterback [who comes out]? Can it be the reserved player at first?
  • Wade Davis:I'll be flat-out honest with you. It probably shouldn't if he wants to keep his job. If he wants to keep his job, if he's the 53rd man on the roster, if he's a free agent who's fighting for a job, maybe he shouldn't. I would hope that he would, I would hope that he feels that he can, but if you want me to be flat-foot honest with you, it probably shouldn't be, just because I don't want to tell someone to give up their lifelong dream of playing in the NFL to ... you know what, yes, it should be. You know, screw it. It should be. I don't want to be in the business of telling anyone they can't live their life authentically. I don't want to do that anymore. It's just not what I'm about anymore. So I want anyone, whether you're the first man or the 25th man or the last man or even someone on the practice squad, to come out and say, "You know what? I'm gay, I'm still a great athlete, and I'm an even better human being."

Wade Davis is an anthropologist, ethnobotanist and professor. He is also a well-traveled researcher, and was named Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. That means he goes around the world and is living and Indiana Jones-style life.

When he’s not being a BAMF, he retreats back to his study in D.C., which is pretty much the greatest den of all time.
