GaymerX East returns again!
We said that we would take the year off, but people kept asking for us not to stop doing GaymerX! That’s why we’ve launched a Kickstarter for GaymerX East 2017!
Once again, GaymerX East 2017 will be held in New York City’s Times Square! For those who went, you’ll remember the awesome views and all the yummy nearby food. We plan on doing a similar better but, as always, do just a little bit better. We’ve taken all of your feedback and we’re going to be changing some things as well as doing new things! Check out the Kickstarter to learn more!
For those who are not familiar with GaymerX, we focus on creating a fun and safe space for gamers of all identities to have fun and hang out with like minded folks. GaymerX is a “queer space”, in that many of the panels revolve around queer issues or queer devs, but GaymerX • Year Four #GX4 is made for everyone and everyone is welcome!
Make sure you sign up for the mailing list to stay in the loop about all that we offer!
I’m white/cis/straight/male. Can I still come?
Absolutely 100%. That ‘everyone’ part of our little hashtag? We really mean it! For real reals. Here’s a little more about our mission statement.
We focus on creating a fun and safe space for gamers and gaymers of all identities to have fun and hang out with like-minded folks. GaymerX is a “queer space”, but is made for everyone! We stand side-by-side with any communities who have been left out of or discriminated in mainstream gaming culture, and we are dedicated to providing a unique, safe, harassment-free space for all marginalized people.
This includes not only queer folk, but women, people of color, and of course the intersections of these identities. We also work really hard to remain the most interesting, engaging, and entertaining gaming convention this side of the ‘sippi. If those values are in line with yours, our invitation is extended to you.
For more of our mission statement, read it on our website here.

GaymerX is an 18+ event, but if you’re with a parent or legal guardian you can join us! No unsupervised kids – we don’t get paid enough to babysit, and this allows our discussions to stay high level and discuss topics that may not always be all ages.
We couldn’t be here without your support. So thanks, everyone, and we’ll see you soon at GaymerX Year Four.
Matt Conn and the whole GaymerX team!
