Gaymers iNC. was founded in 2015 by a group of friends who would meet at home in Clapham, London to play videos games together. We quickly realised that games were a great way to bond – and the perfect ice-breaker for newcomers to the group. LDN Gaymers was born! Word spread and the group grew and grew – so we made it our mission to welcome all of London’s LGBT+ gamers into the fold. Today we’re Gaymers iNC. – come and play with us!
It can be hard to find friends in London, and online gaming is not always the most inclusive environment for LGBT+ players. We aim to provide a better choice, a place where people can be themselves and find like-minded people to play with. Today we stand at 2,000 members – but the quest is just beginning.
Gaymers iNC. is a non-profit group and everything is reinvested in consoles, equipment and throwing great events for our members. The admin team do not take a penny for themselves. We run these events for the sheer love of gaming – and that’s a promise.
Your admin team is a disparate bunch of games-playing and lightsaber-toting lads from across the UK. Think of us as being akin to the Nazgûl. Except there are four of us. And we are eminently more powerful.
Yusif founded Gaymers iNC. in 2015 when the group was just a few mates playing games in a flat in Clapham. Today he scours London for the best venues to host our events.
You’ll see Roony at our events taking photos of all your lovely faces. When he’s not snapping away, he’s also a dab hand at music mixing and puts together the playlist for our monthly meet-up.
Kristof is a total movie-buff and organises our cinema trips to see the latest geeky films. He also looks after our volunteers, hosts the quiz and is a part time glamour model on Twitter!
Chris is a news reporter who loves all things tech – especially video games! Most likely to be found playing Mario Kart and leading the newbies through some rounds of 1-2 Switch.
When you need help, we are there. When you need geek, we are there. When you need pizza, there is always the supermarket – but we will go with you. Whatever you need, give us a shout and we will be ready to fight your corner like Ryu facing off Zangief. I mean, who goes Zangief anyway?! Hadoken!
