So the solution is to make a spectacle of themselves?
It's a con. The participants will be no more making a "spectacle" of themselves than those who attend PAX.
I'm just trying to see the end game here, and right now, it's pretty fucking foggy. What exactly does full equality look like? Are the rich going to start partying with the poor? Sometimes you just have to live with what you have and try to be happy with it, or kill yourself.
Their stated goal is not full 'equality', but to "create a space where all gamers and queer geeks can come together in a welcoming and safe space."
I think the reality is they will never be fully accepted, and the sooner they learn to live with that, the better it will be for everyone.
I wonder how often that was said about Negroes, and women?
