GaymerX is a progressive LGBT orientated video games and geekery convention. They’ve launched a Kickstarter in order to get funding together to put down the $10,000/£6000 deposit to reserve San Francisco’s InterContinental hotel, where the second GaymerX convention will be held on July 11-13 this year.

The event will not only be an opportunity for exploration and adoration of all that is geek, but to celebrate diversity and the many peoples that make up a global family. The three-day event will feature panels and lectures/talks with developers and important LGBT figures. This year’s speakers will include BioWare writer David Gaider, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and Darren Young (the first openly gay WWE star).

There are also concerts form Virt, 2Mello and Aethernaut and the video of a couple who proposed at lasts years GaymerX event, where 2300 where in attendance.

It’s a cause worth supporting. Give what you can.
