The inaugural Global Atheist Convention was held in Melbourne in March 2010. I wrote a little about it here.
My partner Gregory and I decided to attend the second GAC, having enjoyed the first one so much. It was held last weekend, April 13-15 2012.
Again I took my camera, to help record the excitement of the weekend. Please enjoy my photos. I invite your comments.
Oh yeah, there was also that little kiss that changed the world for the better. Check it out here.
Lastly, take a few minutes to help remember the legend that was Christopher Hitchens and watch the tribute to him.

A group of radical, fanatical Jihadi Islamic protesters gathered at the Global Atheist Convention on Sunday April 15 2012. Seemingly they felt that atheism was a threat to humanity and their very existence.
Gregory and I had a smooch in front of these whack-jobs and they started howling that we would “burn in hell”.
Our friend Pete Darwin captured the moment with my trusty Nikon and the rest is history.

I attended the inaugural Global Atheist Convention in 2010. It was an exhilarating weekend packed with some of the finest speakers from Australia and around the world. There were so many highlights for me, although perhaps the biggest highlight was getting to meet a long-standing idol Robyn Williams, and more recent source of inspiration, PZ Myers.

Please enjoy my collection of photographs from the weekend of March 12-14 2010. I’ve posted them to Picasa, Plus, and Facebook. I invite your comments.
Stand tuned for the photographs from the second Global Atheist Convention, this coming weekend, April 13-15 2012.
Lastly, recapture some of the excitement from 2010 through the eyes of the Bruce Llama.
