On August 2nd, GaymerCon, the world’s first LGBTQ centered gaming and tech con created a Kickstarter page with the hopes of raising $25,000. Less than four days later on August 5th, GaymerCon met and surpassed their goal, and is continuing to collect more and more pledges.
“We knew that creating a space for gaymers and queer geeks was important, but now we know that others believe in this idea too.”- Matt Conn, founder of GaymerCon
With 24 days to go still, new goals such as recruiting a geek celebrity to appear at the con as the “Boss of Honor” have been introduced.
