SAN FRANCISCO – GaymerX 2013, formerly known as Gaymercon, is going to be held on August 3 – 4 in San Francisco. It is the first gaming and tech convention geared for LGBTQ community. It will feature gaming panels, booths, a cosplay competition and parties. There will also performances by Aethernaut, F3RAL, Zeke Mystique and Crashfaster.
The weekend gathering will take place in San Francisco’s Japantown District at Hotel Kabuki and Hotel Tomo. According to its event page, they chose this particular location because “the atmosphere was so much more welcoming and festive than other places in the city. We want a place where people can have a really fun experience and where people can be comfortable expressing themselves. The Kabuki will be our central spot for all our events.”
We are looking forward to hanging out with other gamers at the convention. A couple of the programming that we are really excited about is the panel about navigating problematic fandom spaces and the live action roleplay event (LARP). Hope to see you there!
