Tabletop Gaymers Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission 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.
Our biggest convention, the one that started it all, is just around the corner. There will be lots of events including 2 Gaymer Gathering, 4 different Queer as Three-Sided Die panels, and at least 10 related LGBTQ+ events we have identified. There will GAYMER and ALLY badge ribbons, wristbands, and buttons at all our events and we’re working with over a dozen vendors to help distribute ribbons at their booths. And we have a booth on community row!
The video of the inaugural Queer as a Three-Sided Die panel with and Jeremy Crawford (Wizards of the Coast) and Steve Kenson (Green Ronin) is available on YouTube. Help us get access to all of the YouTube features by subscribing to the new Tabletop Gaymers YouTube Channel.
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.
