GaymerX2 Kickstarter Launched, Funded

Last August saw the successful lauch of GaymerX, a convention dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable gathering for gamers and all-around geeks who identify with the LGBTQ community. With over 2,300 attendees, the event’s organizers are looking to expand for 2014’s iteration. The Kickstarter campaign for GaymerX2 launched yesterday and has already surpassed its $10K goal.

With 32 days left and plenty of enticing stretch goals to look forward to, the campaign should become a wild success. The convention will feature Darren Young, the WWE’s first openly gay wrestler, Portal voice actress Ellen McLain, Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider, and reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, among many others.

The convention will take place July 11th– 13th at the San Francisco InterContinental hotel. Badges costs $70 for the weekend.
