Gay gamers convention formally known as GaymerX, is alive and kicking under their new name, GX3: Everyone Games! GX3 will stay in the Bay Area, and will still focus on attracting and creating a safe place for all LGBTQIA gamers to get together and have some fun.
Yesterday, I discovered a video that seems to be making the web-rounds recently, which reveals how tragic this 20 year old’s life had become during a hidden camera conversation, on telling his parents that he was gay. The reaction from the family, at least for me, was almost unbelievable, the screaming and physical violence can make it hard to watch. especially if events like this trigger emotions you wouldn’t want to relive at this time. Please think about that before you hit the play button.
So I think this will be my last official post on QL about Robin Williams. He’s been put to rest and with everything in me I hope he finds the peace that escaped him here. I missed the Emmys this year but I heard there was this tribute. I watched it and I decided I wanted to post it along with some of my final thoughts…
So Costco rolled out a low calorie version of their pre-mixed margarita. I gave it a try a couple weeks ago and it’s made the cut for happy hour!
Starting this week, we are moving our direct email list. This is going to be a big endeavor but it’s definitely time. Our email list is just too big to continue to handle manually. We have needed to go back to an opt-in email format for a while but testing different email systems just took longer than expected. We’ve settled for now on Constant Contact for our direct email list needs and we’re super excited and motivated to get it all done so we can move on to migrating QL to the downloadable version of WordPress.
A while back I had the idea of posting a “Top 10″ list on Tuesdays highlighting the most popular blogs over the last 7 days. I can’t remember where I heard or read about this idea but I’m pretty sure I can’t take all the credit because I’m pretty sure I got it from somewhere. At any rate, this has been an idea for a while now and I wanted to give it a try. Click the link below to find out what’s been hot on QL this last week. You might be surprised!
