Organizers of last year's first gay gaming and geek culture convention have launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding for this year's event, GaymerX2. This year's event is scheduled to take place at the San Francisco InterContinental hotel from July 11 – 13 in San Francisco. According to organizers, they need to raise $10,000 to put a deposit down on the venue.
While things are still being figured out for this year's event, organizers have announced several of the speakers, or "Bosses of Honor." That list includes BioWare's David Gaider (lead writer of Dragon Age series), Gamercamp co-founder and "Meet Grindr" author Jamie Woo, Borderhouse's Mattie Brice, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, IGDA's Gordon Bellamy, SMBC-Comics creator Zach Weiner, sci-fi author John Scalzi , and WWE superstar Fred Rosser (who wrestles under the name Darren Young). Members of Midboss Games, who are developing the point-and-click adventure Read Only Memories, will also be on hand.
