This weekend in San Francisco, LGBT people who love games -- video games, board games, role-playing games -- will gather for the second annual GaymerX convention. The convention aims to create a safe, accepting place for gay gamers who say they sometimes encounter homophobia in the gaming world, but can also feel like nerdy outcasts in the gay community.

Host: Joshua Johnson

Guests:

  • Matt Baume, freelance reporter and photographer who just returned from a trip across the U.S. interviewing gay gamers
  • Sarah Schoemann, organizer with GaymerX
