TABLETOP GAYMERS is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to address homophobia in the tabletop gaming community by providing educational, social, and networking opportunities for LGBTQ+ (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer) “gaymers” and allies.
The Q3D panel at PAX Unplugged was amazing this year. Industry leaders DC, Jeremy Crawford, Steve Kenson, Heather Wilson, and Ashleigh La Porta discussed various queer aspects of the gaming industry. We compiled a list of games, books, and topics mentioned. Subscribe to the Tabletop Gaymers YouTube Channel for past videos.
Help us connect with local and online Gaymer Groups. We want to help groups grow their membership, establish events in their area, and participate in larger events. Check out the Gaymer Group Directory and if your group isn’t listed, please let us know. We’d like to connect, learn from one another, and send you some GAYMER and ALLY swag! We’re putting together a mailing list specifically for leaders, please sign up.
Help Tabletop Gaymers bring board games to LGBTQ+ Community Centers across the nation! We are going to be providing games, materials, and volunteer “Gayme Masters” free of charge. We want to help them establish a recurring Gayme Night where members of the community can meet, make friends, and network while playing awesome board games. We need your help to get the word out and to help raise funds for the events.
We occasionally send out short emails about gaymer events, badge ribbons, etc. If you’re interested in being on on our Mail Chimp mailing list, feel free to add yourself.
Tabletop Gaymers distributes GAYMER and ALLY badge ribbons, for free, at conventions like Origins and Gen Con. Their purpose is to help build the community of gaymers and allies by self-identification. The idea is that the visibility helps enhance the environment of the convention, promotes interaction and community building, networking, and plain old fun. As always, the ribbons free for participants. We also have a lot of other Swag and Promotional Material that we give out at our events and as donor rewards.
If you would like a SPONSOR ribbon, please donate.
