GaymerCon gets support from EA.
Publisher Electronic Arts publicly announced its support for the first annual GaymerCon, a new games convention said to focus on the gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender community.
"EA believes that to be truly innovative, you must be inclusive. We are proud to be a part of this event," said Ginger Maseda of global diversity and inclusion for EA, in a prepared statement made available in the latest GaymerCon press release.
The event has also gained support from the Xbox Live team and Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade.
Fundraising for GaymerCon initially began on Kickstarter with a goal of $25,000. The project reached its goal in late August, hitting $91,389. GaymerCon is scheduled to take place in late Summer of 2013, while EA is said to have a "significant presence" throughout.
