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."

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.
