    As an LGBT individual, I really like that PAX is setting space aside. This way they can be sure all parts of the gaming industry are represented, not just the big companies with the fastest clicking finger. If there was a place on the map that said “LGBT friendly companies” or “companies ran by women” I would look to spend my money there first… since I’m part of those minorities.

    As far as how much each individual want their LGBT involvement called out, that’s very personal. Many people don’t want it known, because they feel like that’s very personal. As for me? If making it clear that I’m a female gamer who belongs to the LGBT community will help others be open minded and evaluate how they view LGBT people and women, then I’ll wave my freak flag high.

      I couldn’t agree with you more.
