PHOTOS: Cosplayers & Cuties at GaymerX

This weekend was the huge gay-gamer convention GaymerX in San Francisco, and boy howdy was it a blast. Thousands of nerdy queers packed into the Hotel Kabuki for panels, booths, tournaments, cosplay, and breeding (of Pokémon, that is).

We dispatched intrepid nerd-photographer Matt Baume (whom you may know as the creator of the Marriage News Watch YouTube series) to snap a few pics. Browse through his favorite snaps below, and if you haven’t had your fill check out an even more massive gallery over on Facebook.

Just bros being bros.

Wife-and-Husband VO artists Ellen McLain (Portal, Pacific Rim) and John Patrick Lowrie (Team Fortress 2) greet the nerds. Ellen’s currently shooting an indie film about a dad and his gay son called Winning Dad, and John has a new book out called Dancing with Eternity.

      Wish I had the money to go :-(

      Why so many pretty boys though? Not a bear in sight! I know there are bear gaymers, one of them proposed to his partner at the convention!
