GX Australia 2016 — Sydney to host Australia’s first queer geek/gaming con
GX Australia is the country’s first convention for queer gamers, geeks, and all of their friends — “a unique, inclusive space for gamers, geeks, and allies of all stripes to come together regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a console fan, a card gamer, or enjoy tabletop: you’re sure to find like-minded friends, or get a chance at trying out something new!”
GX Australia has just hit Kickstarter aiming to raise $50,000 to get up and running in 2016.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Heard of GX/GaymerX? This awesome convention has been taking place in the San Francisco area since 2012! It’s great if you live in the United States already, or can afford the expensive airfare to go overseas, but what about those of us who are a little more bound by gravity?
GX is coming to Australia!
We’re thrilled to announce that GX Australia, with the support and blessings of the talented team in the United States, is taking place in Sydney next year! It will have everything you’ve come to expect from GX, but with home-grown spin and tons of Australian style! February 27th and 28th, 2016 will see us host the first GX Australia event at the Australian Technology Park, minutes away from central Sydney!
There are a bunch of reward tiers on the Kickstarter campaign, which is already over $5000, mostly revolving around tickets and sponsorship opportunities.
