Your Skin Is My Canvas - Fete Lounge (Noon - 2 pm)

Panel - PC At Rocky - Fete (Noon - 1 pm)
When the Rocky Horror Picture Show first attained cult status in the late 70's, and ever since then, it has been a place of unlimited expression. Anything goes. Nothing is sacred. Of late, there has been some criticism directed at the conduct of Dr. Frank N. Furter and “offensive” AP call back lines at shows by the fans. This comes not from the traditionally uptight socially conservative community, but rather from people traditionally on the socially liberal side of the aisle. Have we gone too far? Is it time to start toning it down? Hosted by Bernie Bregman.
Panel - Rocky Horror Remake - Fete (1 - 2 pm)
It's coming! The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake will air on Fox October 20. The very idea of this movie being made has sparked controversy and passionate opinions within the heart and soul of our community.
Larry Viezel has gathered information on the movie to level-set us about what to expect. Love the idea of a remake? You need to be at this panel. Hate the idea of a remake? You really need to be at this panel. Let's all get together in one hall and, after getting the update, tell us what YOU think.
