Hey there everyone! We hope you’re all feeling great~

As of right now, we have 7 days remaining on our Kickstarter. We still have quite a ways to go though, and we really need your help. This Kickstarter is our only planned GaymerX event this year, and the future of GaymerX depends on its success. If you want to help keep our gay gaming dreams alive, please tell all your friends about our campaign and consider backing, even for just $1 if you can’t make it this time.

Wanna back at a higher amount? Ticket prices are at the lowest they’ll be if you buy them through the Kickstarter. PLUS buying them that way guarantees we can put on the event! They’re transferable too, so if you can afford to get extras then distribute them to those in need later it’d be a big help.

We also need your help getting the word out there. If you know cool gamers in the NYC, Boston, or just the east coast in general, please let them know about us and this event. Cons are for hanging out with friends and making new ones, so we want to meet as many of your friends as possible. Please let them know about our event!

And hey, after over two years of paperwork GaymerX is now registered as a 501c3 non-profit!! Future donations to us as an organization will be tax-deductible, there will be more transparency, and generally more to come. So please help us celebrate and back our Kickstarter today:

Our future is in your hands. Thank you for your continued support!!!

Announcing Our New Kickstarter: #GXEast17!

Posted by GaymerX (Creator)

Hey there everyone! It’s been a little while since the last time we wrote to you, but we have some really exciting news: Our next GaymerX event will be #GXEast17 this November in NYC!

As you all know, GaymerX can’t happen without your support, and so we wanted to let you know we’ve created a Kickstarter to fund the event. You’ve all been rallying for more events in the US, and now’s the moment to make that possible. Our Kickstarter goal is $34,000, and we have so many cool rewards for you regardless of whether or not you can attend.

You’ve helped make GaymerX possible before, and we hope to count on your support to make our event possible. So please back our latest event, and tell all your friends! The future of our gay gaming events depends on it 


Support Us On Patreon For Giving Tuesday!

Posted by GaymerX (Creator)

Hey backers! It’s Giving Tuesday!!! Are you familiar with it? It’s like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but instead of being focused on mark-downs its about donating to your favorite organizations. We thought this would be a great time to let you know that last week we relaunched our Patreon!!

Y’all especially know how important crowd-funding is to us. Everything we’ve been able to do has been thanks to the support of all of you. GaymerX never could have existed without Kickstarter, and that’s help us grow into Midboss, which brought about Gaming in Color and 2064: Read Only Memories. So we wanted to make sure you all knew that we’re trying something new!

The account has existed in some form for a while, we became so inspired by the company’s presence at GX4 that we decided to hustle on making it into an active space for all of you. What does that mean exactly? Well, we’ve completely overhauled the account with new goals and rewards so that we’re giving you even more than ever before. We’ve already hit our first goal of launching a Discord just for Patreon supporters, and we’re about $20 away from doing a monthly stream with Midboss employees, plus Patrons will be the ones picking the game! We'd like to use today to get to $1000 a month, and we hope you’ll help.

You’ve done so much to support us over the years, and we’re hoping we can channel some of your generous energy into a more on-going space. We’re in our cold winter, so to speak, and the financial support we receive through Patreon will help give us that extra boost we need to keep things operating smoothly.

We’re working hard to be the best company possible for all of you, and we have a lot of cool stuff to share with you in return for your support. So please, this holiday season support your queer family over at Midboss by becoming a backer on Patreon!

Thanks for a great GaymerX + Post Con Survey!

WE DID IT!!!!! 

 Emi here, GaymerX Photography and Social! <3
 Thanks to everyone who came out and played with us!

This year’s event was so magical and we know it’s because of the time we spent with all of you. We had such amazing attendees, staff, sponsors, panelists, exhibitors, performers, bosses, and a great hotel crew that brought it together in the best way.

 We're looking for feedback on the event, so please fill out the following survey - Click here to take the GaymerX Year Four Survey! 

 Our team has been resting and working hard behind the things to help share what it was like to be there, but in the meantime you can check out these great posts about GaymerX Year Four!

 Now that GX4 has come to a close, we’re turning our focus to making GaymerX East have the best first year we can. Don’t forget that tickets are on sale now, and our Early Bird price is only $40!

 What’s coming after GX East? GX Australia of course! Our international friends are back again to bring you all another year of down under gay gaming. Their Kickstarter is live now and needs your support, so please back them as soon as you can. 

They still have two weeks to go and every little bit helps them succeed. Let’s make GX Australia 2017 possible!! 

We love to hear from you!
