As we get asked this question every year, we are an all-inclusive group. This is not a "gay" party and everyone is always welcomed. If you ever come to Houston out to any of our meetups, you will see that our events include people from all walks of life. We simply provide a safe-space for everyone to meet new friends and have an awesome time doing what we all love: being nerds and playing video games. Please make plans to come join us!
