What is the GaymerX Foundation?
GaymerX Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization focused on amplifying the voices of LGBTQ people in the gaming world. We have a broad network of gamers and developers of LGBTQ identity which we tap into for their expertise, as well as offer support to through our programs.
Who started the Foundation?
The Foundation was started by the organizers of the GaymerX convention, an event which celebrates the ways in which the world of gaming media and community intersect with LGBTQ culture. This is their newest step and project in continuing to serve and support the LGBTQ gaming community.
What do we do?
Our main goal is to amplify and give support to LGBTQ voices in gaming. One of the ways in which we do that is to host or partner with events while sourcing and supporting LGBTQ guests and presenters. Another is to partner with other organizations to help build resources to properly support their LGBTQ members.
We’ll be holding our New York event, GaymerX East in November 2017 and we want to make sure that all of the LGBTQ guests who are taking time out of their lives to help teach and entertain their community are rewarded for that time. Beyond that, we are working on future projects regarding game developers.
