Event Details

Are you gay, bi, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual or just a staunch ally? Do you love games? Then come one, come all to the second annual Boston GLBTQA Gamer Meetup! Though this event has been organized in connection with PAX East, you do NOT have to be a con attendee to come to this party, and the doors are open wide to everyone from game developers to casual fans! Tickets include food from a select menu of favorite Uno Chicago Grill dishes, a choice of apple pie or a brownie sundae for dessert, and unlimited soda or iced tea.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Cassandra at cassandra.lease@gmail.com!


WHEN: Friday, March 22nd, 2013, starting at 7 pm

WHERE: Uno Chicago Grill, 731 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115

WHAT: Food. Soft drinks. Drinks at the bar if you want them. And, most importantly, the opportunity to meet a whole lot of awesome gamers from Boston and beyond.

WHO: You! Are you gay? Bi? Trans? Queer? Questioning? Asexual? An ally? As long as you’re into games and down with the QUILTBAG crowd, you’re more than welcome to attend.

HOW: This year, we're going with a ticket system. After I have a ballpark headcount and I've had a chance to firm things up with my contact at Uno, I'll post the event page here and you can begin purchasing tickets. For a little under $17.50 a head, you'll get unlimited soda, water or iced tea, your choice from a limited selection of entrees, and either Granny Smith apple pie or a brownie sundae for dessert.

What exactly does QUILTBAG stand for, anyway?
*deep breath*

Q! Queer! Questioning!
U! Unidentified!
I! Intersex!
L! Lesbian!
T! Transgender! Transsexual! Transvestite! Two-Spirit!
B! Bisexual!
A! Allied! Asexual!
G! Gay! Genderqueer! Gamer!

What's that spell? A MADE-UP WORD THAT'S STILL EASIER TO PRONOUNCE THAN GLBTQA! YAY QUILTBAG!

How can I help?
Right now? Post here! Brainstorm! Keep checking the thread! I'll keep you posted on stuff you can do to make this happen.

My friend/partner/sibling/time-traveling alien companion/clone is not going to PAX East. Can they still attend?
Yes! While this event is loosely connected to PAX East (a whole slew of gamers will be in town, so it’s an awesome time to do it), it is not an official convention event. No one will be checking for badges at the door. Everyone is welcome.

Will there be alcohol at this event?
You may need to go to the bar for it, and you will need to pay for it yourself, but you should be able to get booze if you're 21 or over and you want to imbibe.

Can I bring my partner to this event? Even if they’re not a gamer?
Yes and yes. This is a celebration of our community, and if your partner wants to join you, they are completely welcome – just as long as we have room for you, that is! While the focus of this event is firmly on the gaming community, I’m not going to tell anyone to leave their partner at home even if they’re NOT gamers or industry professionals. (This does apply in the plural as well, for our polyamorous guests.)

I’m bisexual, can I still attend?
Yes!

I’m transgender, can I still attend?
Yep!

I’m still figuring out my sexuality, can I still attend?
Indeed!

I’m asexual, am I welcome?
Completely!

I’m straight but gay-friendly, can I still attend?
Indubitably!

I’m gay, can I still attend?
…I…uh…what? Yes.

I’m a honey badger, can I attend?
Are you a gay, trans, bi, asexual, questioning or QUILTBAG-friendly honey badger? If so, yes. But please don’t maul anyone.

I'm a Time Lord, can I attend?
Please bring one (1) bicurious, unmarried leggy Scottish redhead and/or one (1) gleefully bisexual future time agent as your plus one(s). But yes.

I’m not really into labels, can I still attend?
Look, seriously, as long as you’re down with the QUILTBAG crowd, aren’t looking to troll us, and don’t harass anyone, you’re welcome. In the words of Wil Wheaton, just don’t be a dick.
