GaymerCon is Fully Funded—and Then Some—for a 2013 Meeting

GaymerCon, an effort to convene the "first gaming and geek lifestyle convention with a focus on LGBT culture," drew backing and support from the likes of Xbox Live, Penny Arcade, and even the Sniper from Team Fortress 2, beat its funding target by a mile after its Kickstarter closed on Friday.

Organizers set $25,000 as a goal; they brought in $91,389, guaranteeing that the Con will be held Aug. 3-4, 2013, in San Francisco. The group is now in the process of selecting a venue and hotel(s), and will open up badges for sale again some time down the line. And yeah, they'll need to think up some panel ideas, too. But it's on, for sure.
