GX3 / GaymerX is an annual convention focused on games and gaming culture – Video Games, Tabletop Games & Card Games. This is GaymerX’s third year of creating a fun and safe space for gamers and gaymers of all identities to enjoy their gaming hobbies and hang out with like minded folks. GaymerX is a “queer space” – in that many of the panels revolve around queer issues or queer devs, but GX3 is made for everyone and everyone is welcome! There will be a variety of panels on gaming, cosplay and popular media, a gaming arcade and areas for people to play games. Cosplay will be big, and there will be concerts and parties including a VIP party on Thursday night, December 10th. You can also pick up your badges on Thursday
Prism will be joining in at Booth 617 along with comics creators Josh Trujillo (with his new book Death Saves) and Tara Madison Avery, creator of Gooch and editor of the upcoming Alphabet anthology. Comic creator Robert Triptow will be appearing at the Prism Booth on Saturday, December 12 from 2 to 4 pm signing copies of his brand new graphic novel, Class Photo.
Special Guests of the Con include Jennifer Hale, voice over artist from TV series and games including Spider-Man, The Powderpuff Girls, Mass Effect, Baldur’s Gate and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic; Jamin Warren, founder of the videogame arts and culture company Kill Screen; Zach Weinersmith, creator of the comic strip Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and many more famous game professionals and fans!
GaymerX was founded by Matt Conn in 2012 with the mission to make the gaming world safer and more inclusive to marginalized people, especially those in the gender and sexuality spectrum. One of GaymerX’s goals is to create better practices for safety and inclusiveness in physical and online gaming spaces. Gaming, socializing, and partying can be effective avenues to test out social conditions that favor inclusiveness and conflict resolution.
So if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area on the weekend of December 11 – 13, come on OUT and PLAY!
