Announcing the Inaugural Grey Faction Conference

Announcing the Inaugural Grey Faction Conference

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Grey Faction conference, The World Congress on Moral Panics: Conspiracism and Pseudoscience in the Age of QAnon. The conference will be hosted on The Satanic Temple’s Virtual Headquarters. The illustrious architects of The Satanic Estate are building a second conference hall to serve as the venue for the inaugural conference, which will be held from April 9th to April 12th.

These dates coincide with the annual conference of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD), an ostensibly-respectable mental health organization which in reality serves as a central hub for licensed mental health professionals to discuss bizarre and debunked QAnon-adjacent conspiracy theories of Satanic ritual abuse and Illuminati mind control.
