Trust me, this is a big crowd. They just seem invisible because you know they are playing games instead of hooking up online, hanging in bars, working out, and doing the “stereotypical” gay male crap.

This is a one sided blog. No story on Manny Castro, the Chick-Fil-A vandal?
If you can’t wait for Gaymercon, there is Gaylaxicon Oct 5th in Minneapolis.

First of all…
You, QJ201, sounds a little too judgy. I happen to play games AND work out AND hook up online…get over yourself.
Secondly, to you, M. Scott Hernandez. All blogs are one-sided. It’s a blog. I’m tired of people bitching about what does or does not get posted here. Let me repeat…it’s Andy’s BLOG…he gets to post whatever he and his staff care to post.
Thirdly, Much needed event this Gaymercon. All of the ridiculous keyboard/internet homophobic bravado that gets thrown around in-game, while I realize is totally ridiculous…can wear one down after a bit. Will be nice to connect with actual people and attend forums on gayming topics.
Thanks for making me read this blog several times a day. I LOVE it. Keep up the good work.

Let that Youtube video rack up all the dislikes it wants. If SMBC is on board, that webcomic’s fans will raise the money all on their own.
Let’s not forget the time SMBC made it to national news thanks to NOM hotlinking an image of theirs.

I had already contributed to the kickstarter fund and am so glad to see this receiving coverage here. Look forward to seeing some of y’all next year if you should attend…

If you’re a gaymer, you have to try Red Light Centre. OMG.

“There was a moment in South Florida, seven or eight years ago, when being 23, male, gay, and sociable very nearly required one to be conversant with underground anime titles, and to know the basic mechanics of an X-Box controller.”
This has to be the most inane, vapid and ego-centric item I’ve ever read here. Proof that “gaymers” can be just as deluded and arrogant as circuit queens and gym bunnies.

I want to echo TSG’s comment above (gotta figure out whose initials those are).
You need Kickstarter to get a convention off the ground? Good thing that wasn’t the opinion when the first Gaylaxicon was being planned. It was also 1988, so none of us had heard of Kickstarter or even the Internet.

you sound like the dream man robb
@rodney..i’m not sure a hardcore pornography game is a must play just because i’m a gaymer lol

The speed in which I threw my money at them and filled out the volunteer form on their website is a testament to how excited I am for this convention! Thanks for the tip, Andy! *back to my 3D Animation thesis project*

After seeing the ridiculous backlash to nominal gay content in some games, I’d say this is desperately needed for visibility. It doesn’t really compare to Gaylaxicon–which is described as a sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and comic convention on their website. Gaymercon is specifically about gaming. Also, Kickstarter is sort of a fad right now, especially in the gaming comm.

@Luke: Yeah, the chaste and sexually immature probably shouldn’t apply.

Rodney, Red Light Centre is not a game. It’s a virtual stroke arena. I like sex as much as the next guy, have no trouble getting laid, and am an avid gaymer. RLC doesn’t appeal in the slightest to me, nor do I think it would to most gaymers. You’re hyping up the wrong tree…
August 5, 2012 at 12:47 pm
Looks like it’s going to be an awesome event! It’s not fair that you Americans get to keep all the fun to yourselves Oh well, there will be time when my country Indonesia and the rest of the world can join the fun, maybe in 100 years or so…

This is inspiring news. I ran an all gay male D&D campaign from 1995 to 2003, and have many fond memories from that experience. Both my sons are now VERY interested in anime and online gaming. So this definitely speaks to me.
August 5, 2012 at 3:48 pm
Well, I guess I’m just looking at it differently. To me, it’s “The Sims” for the gay set.

You can buy your own home and furnish it, have a career, go to the movies, shop, and live life in beautiful environs.
Sorry if the sex gets in the way for most of YOUR gaymers.
August 5, 2012 at 3:55 pm
Oh, and by the way, Aladinsane, it’s really nice to know there are even people that gaymers turn up their nose at. Get over yourselves.
August 5, 2012 at 7:57 pm
Lolz, someone has his panties in a bunch.
August 5, 2012 at 9:10 pm
Indeed I am chaste and immature, have been my whole life, sorry if that makes me irrelevant :/
