Gaymercon Reaches Initial Fundraising Goal in Less than Four Days


Gaymercon has raised over $25,000 and set sights on higher stretch goals


GaymerCon, the first ever gaming and tech convention focusing on LGBTQ culture, launched a Kickstarter at midnight on Wednesday, August 2. Their initial fundraising goal was $25,000. On Sunday, August 5, in less than four days, they surpassed that number and continue to grow.

“We are so grateful to everyone who is making this possible.” Said Matt Conn, the founder of GaymerCon. “We knew that creating a space for gaymers and queer geeks was important, but now we know that others believe in this idea too.”

New funding goals have been introduced to the Kickstarter to meet demand including booking music talent for a gaymerconcert and recruiting a geek celebrity to appear at the con as a “Boss of Honor”.
