GX: Everyone Games
GX, or GaymerX, is an annual convention focused on games – Video Games, Tabletop Games, Card Games and creating a fun and safe space for gamers and gaymers of all identities to have fun and hang out with like minded folks. Although its a “queer space”, what that means is that many of the panels revolve around queer issues or queer devs, and we stress creating a safe space, but GX is made for everyone and everyone is welcome!
The convention will run from a Friday afternoon through that Sunday, and all tickets get you in on all three days.
Who Can Come?
This year, we’re going by our shiny new nickname “GX” to make it clear thateveryone is welcome. Our official name is still GaymerX and we are still here to celebrate and encourage LGBT inclusivity in games, but we’re more than that, too. We stand side-by-side with all communities who’ve been left out of mainstream gaming, and we are dedicated to providing a safe, harassment-free space throughout our entire convention. So no matter who you are, if you want to game with respect, you’re invited to GX3.
“I’ve never been discriminated against, harassed, or marginalized… I just think those things are wrong. Am I invited too?”Yes, you are. We really meaneverybody.
The only caveat is that the event is 18+. This allows us to keep to conversations professional and curate a really awesome experience for you!
When is it? And where?
It’s December 11-13, 2015 at the San Jose Marriott, downtown San Jose!
