Cute Nerds Dominate GaymerX in San Francisco, CA
The weekend of July 15, 2014 saw a phalanx of LGBT gamers descend on San Francisco for the second GaymerX conference. Swarming the Intercontinental Hotel, attendees scurried between panels, dances, game rooms and vendor booths, making the most of the rare opportunity to surround themselves in queer nerdiness.
Why do people come to a conference like this? For a variety of reasons, but one of the common threads among all attendees was that they were super-excited to find a confluence of two passions that define them: being queer and being a geek. After all, where else can you find sexy Cyclops cosplay? Or debate the relative merits of Drag Race contestants while playing the Battlestar Galactica board game?
And at the end of the weekend, everyone goes home, and hopefully brings a little piece of the con with them. For some folks, that takes the form of new online friends; for others, inspiration to start or join a gay nerd gaming group in their hometown.
