GX: Everyone Games, formerly GaymerX, launches Kickstarter for third annual LGBT gaming conference

GaymerX has relaunched under the new more inclusive name GX: Everyone Games and are currently running a new Kickstarter campaign to finance the third annual LGBT gaming convention to be held next year in the San Francisco bay area.

"We've become more and more aware that not all of our attendees identify with the 'gaymer' label. And while we love all our gay dude friends, we realize there are more people than that who want an awesome space to hang with their friends in a safe and diverse environment. We want to make sure we represent everyone who feels like they've been left out of mainstream gamer culture," the organizers said of the name change.

The GX3 Kickstarter is aiming to raise $80,000 – roughly half of the cost to put on the event – and has already raised over $18,000. Last month, GaymerX2 was held in San Francisco and included gaming parties, inclusive conversations and panels, and out WWE Superstar Darren Young appeared as a Boss of Honor.
