Xbox Live supports GaymerCon event

Xbox Live team puts their weight behind the LGBT-focused Kickstarter

Microsoft's Xbox Live team has released a video in support of GaymerCon, a gaming convention focused on LGBT gamers. The GaymerCon Kickstarter has already surpassed its original goal of $25,000 and currently sits above $75,000 with more than a day left in the drive.

"A closer integration of our experiences, our lives in the gaming community helps not just to expose to the other players, but also game developers, helps them develop more interesting stories, and how we are represented will become more realistic," said Xbox Live's operations lead.

"I think it's a great opportunity to bring people together, about a common cause and common background, and see what comes out of it," said Nell, an Xbox Live program manager.

GaymerCon will be taking place in San Francisco, CA, but a final venue or date has not been determined yet.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
