Gaymercon beats funding goal in five days

While there are still those who wonder what the point of Gaymercon is, people with money have demonstrated that it is, at least, important to them. The gay-friendly convention has surpassed its funding within five days, with plenty of time on the clock to make more scratch. 

The fundraiser has currently made $28,603, with an original goal of $25,000 and 25 days left on the Kickstarter clock. 

The team has added new stretch goals to keep things interesting. At $35,000, Gaymercon will feature the Gaymerconcert, bringing together a whole bunch of bands for a Saturday shindig. At $60,000, a celebrity "Boss of Honor" will be acquired. 

I am so there.
