Last August's Gaymer X turned out to be a smash hit and attendees and others were hoping that not only would the event return next year but that it would grow.

Wishes granted! Today Gaymerconnect made the announcement that GaymerX2 will be take place July 11th-13th, 2014 in downtown San Francisco at the Intercontinental hotel. Attendees will get to romp around in three times the conference area, a pair of ballrooms, a spa and even a Michelin-star restaurant for Gaymer foodies in attendance. Plenty of guest speakers will be on hand including David Gaider, Mattie Brice, Alexis Ohanian, Gordon Bellamy, Jaime Woo, and John Scalzi, musicians like 2 Mello and Virt, as well as returning faces like Ellen McLain, John Patrick Lowrie and Zach Weinersmith. Logo TV will return as the presenting media sponsor of GaymerX.

If you were there last year you probably remember the famous marriage proposal that took place during the voice acting workshop. This year the couple will be tying the knot during the show and everyone is invited to the festivities!

It's great to see video games becoming so integral to culture that they can be used as a rallying point for diverse groups and serve as a backdrop for gatherings of like-minded individuals.

“For games to be taken seriously as the pieces of art that they are,” said Matt Conn, co-founder of GaymerX, “they can’t live in a culture that is afraid to tackle and discuss issues like gender, sexuality, race, and identity. The amount of support that we’ve gotten for GaymerX shows that the gaming community is coming around to the idea of having serious debates on how to improve the medium.”

Well said Matt!
