Thanks to everyone who came out and played with us!

This year’s event was so magical and we know it’s because of the time we spent with all of you. We had such amazing attendees, staff, sponsors, panelists, exhibitors, performers, bosses, and a great hotel crew that brought it together in the best way.

We’re looking for feedback on the event, so please fill out the following survey – Click here to take the GaymerX Year Four Survey!

Our team has been resting and working hard behind the things to help share what it was like to be there, but in the meantime you can check out these great posts about GaymerX Year Four!

The Advocate’s Awesome Photo Set of GX4!


Now that GX4 has come to a close, we’re turning our focus to making GaymerX East have the best first year we can. Don’t forget that tickets are on sale now, and our Early Bird price is only $40!

Feeling super inspired by GX4 and want to share that with our attendees? We decided to extend our panel submissions to the 14th! That’s Friday, so you still have two days to put something together and send it our way. We love new voices so please submit even if you’re feeling shy!


What’s coming after GX East? GX Australia of course! Our international friends are back again to bring you all another year of down under gay gaming.

Their Kickstarter is live now and needs your support, so please back them as soon as you can. They still have two weeks to go and every little bit helps them succeed.

Let’s make GX Australia 2017 possible!!


We love to hear from you!

New This Year at GaymerX – Diversity Theatre

The Expo Hall at GaymerX this year features a first, The Diversity Theater. Here companies and organizations will showcase their initiatives, offerings, and recruitment opportunities. Reinforcing the truth that diversity isn’t merely accepted in today’s game and tech industry, it’s in demand.

We’re excited about this great addition to our expo hall, where attendees can meet representatives from companies like Intel, Microsoft, LinkedIn and Patreon!

Returning for GaymerX 4 – Safe Spaces!

Hi friends and family!

Remember last year when we introduced a POC Safe Space at GX3? It was a hit and welcome by our POC community members. During post-convention feedback, we heard that others would like a safe space as well, and because we want GaymerX to be a safe, happy and enjoyable convention, this year we’ve expanded our Safe Space to a dedicated room for the entire convention. Unfortunately, due to space we can’t have a room per group, but there is one room for those who may need some time away, or who might want to discuss a panel they just were at, or just meet others in a quiet, less crowded space.

Questions, concerns or other issues can be directed to  and will be answered by our Diversity Liaison, Tanya DePass

Announcing: GaymerX East!


Hey Gaymers!

The time has certainly flown since our last update: there are only two weeks left before GaymerX Year Four begins! Since our last update we’ve been working hard on getting our convention ready for you so we can make this year our best yet. We’re so excited to be able to share it with you.

We’re also happy to announce that Microsoft will have presents for all of you who come to GaymerX. We can’t talk too much about the goodies yet- we don’t want to spoil the surprise- but we can tell you that we’re going to have a special surprise for Xbox users. You’ll find out more soon!!

Oh, and speaking of Microsoft: last week we announced our very first east coast event at the Microsoft Technology Center! We’re coming to NYC for two days of games, dev, and community building with all of you and it’s gonna be great. Submissions are open for panels and our Indie Space, and we’ll be revealing more information as we get closer to the event. We made a cute subdomain so you can keep up with everything as we announce it at

That’s all from us for now. Don’t forget that if you have any question can reach out to us at anytime via

See you soon at GaymerX Year Four!!!

Last day for hotel rooms!!

Today’s the last day to book a hotel room for GaymerX at the group rate ($145)! After this, room prices will likely be double!

Please use this link to book a hotel now and tell anyone you know who was planning to go!

** Sunday night rooms might already be full! **

Just think of how much easier it’ll be to cosplay when you’re staying at the venue!

Early Bird Tickets/Hotel Con Rates End Soon, Panel Submissions Extended!

We want to hear from you! – We are now accepting Panel and Speaker Submissions until July 15th!

panel 01

Do you want to give a talk about your video game dev retrospective?
Have a skill you want to teach others like podcasting, branding or streaming?
Want to host a meetup for fellow artists/programmers/Dragon Age fans?
Or maybe you have experience, but don’t want to host the talk yourself.

GaymerX has you covered!
We’ve just extended our programming submissions until July 15th!

panel 02

We especially want to hear from POC! Our Diversity Liaison, Tanya DePass, has some words to say on this matter.

I’m putting on my Diversity Liaison hat before I start waving at you for a moment of your time. GaymerX Year 4 is coming up this fall and programming suggestions are open until July 15th. Convention content comes from the community. We want and need more POC on panels that are NOT just about diversity.

We know there’s a great community of game makers, podcasters, cosplayers, artists, musicians and more who should submit programming items for GX4! There’s more to our stories than being a marginalized identity within another marginalized identity.

We love games, all facets of making them. So bring your knowledge to GX4 and let’s make this year better for representation across all programming and events September 30 – October 2nd.

Thank you, Tanya DePass
GaymerX Diversity Liaison

Our Hearts Go Out to Orlando

GaymerX attendees and fans,

This is a tragic and pivotal time for the queer community, after beloved members of our community were senselessly taken from us in Orlando. This unspeakable hate crime against our friends and family, gay & queer people of color at a gay Latinx event, shows just how at risk we still are every day in this country and why our fight is far from over.

For the rest of June, GaymerX will be donating $20 of all GaymerX Year Four (GX4) 3-day ticket sales to Pulse Victims Fund, Orlando Youth Alliance and Zebra Youth to a minimum of $1,500

Moving forward, we will be reviewing our security procedures with our team and Santa Clara Hyatt & Convention Center to ensure the continued safety of attendees and volunteers at our events.
GaymerX and its community stands in solidarity with the LGBTQ people of  Orlando and all of the people who now give support in the wake of this tragedy. We will continue to gather, we will continue to fight to build our community together as a family.
