QueersPlay was founded in 2014 by cosplayers Kimber Brightheart and Dommenique Dumptrux to challenge the toxic masculinity, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, and transmisogyny that often runs rampant in convention culture. QueersPlay has 6 queer and transgender collaborative members. QueersPlay aims to create safer spaces for marginalized communities within convention culture. Additionally, QueersPlay contributes to more vulnerable in the queer community and donates to grassroots organizations that benefit LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness.
