Introducing Gaymers iNC.
An introduction by Chris, Kristof, Roony & Yusif
This group 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!
That name served us well – but we were not the only group in London reaching out to LGBT+ geeks and gamers. To Londoners, LDN and London are one and the same. Many gamers told us they found it confusing that there were two groups with essentially the same name. Gamers would post on the other group’s wall, thanking them for events we had thrown. We know the team at London Gaymers found that frustrating too.
As word spread and the group grew and grew, we knew it was time to level up.
