The Steampunk Consortium

The Steampunk Consortium

Headquartered in Muncie, Indiana, the Steampunk Consortium hopes to be your connection for all things Steampunk in east central Indiana. By checking our website you will find updates and information about events throughout the region as well as local steampunk salons, and more. 

We hope the reason people are joining our group is to be involved, and to help expand the presence of Steampunk in the larger community. We are an all volunteer group. Everyone is encouraged to participate. There is no cost to join. 

The Steampunk Consortium is dedicated to working toward unity in the larger community. We hope to bring other Steampunk groups together for collegial jollification, explore what Steampunk is as a cultural phenomenon, and to increase Steampunk awareness in Indiana. That said, the primary goal of the Consortium is to simply have fun, enjoy fine company, and as we say, “Enjoy who you are becoming”.

Mission Safe Zone

We welcome ALL people. Bigotry, bullying and/or intimidation will not be tolerated. We believe religion and politics are personal views and should not be the focus of our group. Every individual is welcome and is expected to be welcoming of others regardless of Age, Ethnicity, Sex, Disability, Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, Religious or Political Affiliation.

If you dislike or disagree with another‘s personal views and/or preferences, please keep those views to yourself. We expect members and friends to be respectful of others and to use proper (dare we say Victorian) manners when interacting. If one is confronted with controversial subjects in conversation or behavior, we recommend one politely excuse one’s self and move on, rather than engaging further. If it is not possible to follow this recommendation, one or both parties may be asked to leave our group. ​  

​While the Steampunk Consortium is a social group formed to enjoy the aesthetic of the Victorian/Edwardian period, as well as Dieselpunk, Goth and Wild West themed attire and characters, we also intend to build and maintain a “Safe Zone” for our members and friends so everyone involved may feel welcomed, find friendship, acceptance, and be supported while doing so. 

Our mission is to develop a Safe Zone for, and a community of allies to support LGBTQIA+ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and ally/asexual). We hope the Steampunk Consortium will be a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQIA+ people. We are a work in progress though, and will continue to seek out the best way to meet our objective.
