It was previously reported that after only its second year the queer-friendly gaming convention GaymerX would be no more. Numerous reasons were cited for the con’s end, the biggest one being a significant lack of financial support from sponsors and game companies to help with the event’s already high costs. Running a game convention at a major hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world is no small feat, and organizers Toni Rocca and Matt Conn have publicly shared their uncertainty of holding another con, let alone breaking even on the first two. Since then a number of game developers have stepped up with financial support for the convention.
Today it has been announced that GaymerX is coming back for a third year and will be rebranded as GX3: Everyone Games.
