SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 19, 2014) - MidBoss, the team behind the convention known as GaymerX2, is excited to announce that openly gay WWE wrestler Fred Rosser AKA Darren Young, will be participating in this year's festivities. The convention is to be held at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco's vibrant South of Market neighborhood from July 11-13th.
Darren Young will be signing autographs and joining in Friday's Opening Ceremonies, as well as Sunday's Closing Ceremonies. He will also be a part of a panel titled "A Fireside Chat with Darren Young" at GaymerX.
"Darren Young's involvement in GaymerX is tremendously exciting. We understand the struggle that athletes face in coming out, especially when they live in the spotlight," quoted Toni Rocca, President of GaymerX. "For a member of an organization as widely watched as WWE to be comfortable with his identity and also to continue to be accepted in his line of work is a great example for all athletic fields out there. We would really like to celebrate that."
"I am very excited to be a part of this year's GaymerX convention" Quoted Fred Rosser aka WWE's Darren Young,"Gay geeks and gamers around the world deserve to have their own community and I'm very proud to be a part of what should be an awesome experience."
Following the great success of last year's GaymerX Kickstarter, the 2014 convention will support another Kickstarter, with a pledge where you can actually interact with and chat with Darren Young yourself. There are other pledges including sponsoring the convention, badges for the con, and cute stickers featuring the con's mascots, Conway and Turing.
