Gaymers

Gaymer, or Gay Gamer, is a term used to refer to the group of gamers who identify themselves as gay, bisexual, lesbian, or transgendered. (It has nothing to do with the cider brand!)

This demographic has been the subject of two large surveys: by Jason Rockwood in 2006, and by Paul Nowak in 2009. Only a "very small minority" of the respondents to the first survey supported the use of the term gaymer.

In 2007 Chris Vizzini, owner of the gaming site Gaymer.org, sought to trademark the term Gaymer¬†with respect to online communities.
