Also, I really like the message of inclusiveness that GaymerX stands for. Many of my game dev friends are from marginalized groups and have directly experienced some truly horrific shit just by being different. I want things like GaymerX to continue to exist, so showing my support by buying a ticket and attending is important. This is my industry, and I hope to be in it for the rest of my life, so working towards making it a cool place for everyone works out for me, too.
I wasn't aware that GaymerX happened 15 minutes away from my home until a few days before the event, otherwise I would've attended for more than just one day!
