Pick up your GAYMER and ALLY badge ribbons from one of our supporting vendors. New wristbands and buttons will also be available at all of our Tabletop Gaymer events.
Safe(r) gathering to meet gaymers from across the country, create friendships, networking, etc.

GCC – Meeting Room D180
Join fellow lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) gaymers and allies for a casual social event. Play games, meet new friends, make plans, and create new connections with like-minded individuals. Some games will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. GAYMER and ALLY badge ribbons, buttons, and wristbands will be available for pick up.
Experience Columbus Pride with the parade, which will go right by the west end of the convention center. The parade starts at 10:30 AM and the line-up is just north of the convention center, so don’t be late.
Queer as a 3-Sided Die (Saturday @ 3:00 PM)
Saturday, 16 Jun 2018, at 3:00 PM
GCCC – Meeting Room A215
Industry panelists lead discussion of gender and sexuality issues in gaming from design and publishing to game-play and community. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are a part of the gamer community. Although the gaming community is known for its tolerance, LGBT people still often struggle to see places for themselves in the fantasy worlds we create.
