GaymerX has issued a "call for submissions" for those interested in speaking at the second annual GaymerX convention in San Francisco this summer. Speaker submissions will be accepted via the event's website through the end of April. The GaymerX2 event will be held once again at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown San Francisco from July 11 – 13, 2014.
In case you didn't know, GaymerX2 is an event that provides a friendly atmosphere to the LGBT-gaming and geek community. Friends of the community who don't happen to be LGBT are also welcomed.
The call for submissions follows a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the event which generated twice the amount of cash organizers were asking for. The money is being used as a deposit on the venue for the event.
Speakers already scheduled to appear at this year's event include games journalist Mattie Brice, BioWare writer David Gaider, and Parsons The New School for Design professor Colleen Macklin. It will also feature a game exhibit curated by IndieCade, a film festival, cosplay events, and many other fan-related activities.
