PAX has always put community first and has launched a variety of events within the cons to help empower gamers from marginalized communities. This is exactly what The gameHERs (pronounced "gamers;" stylized the*gameHERs) is doing, and with PAX South 2020 as their first convention, we got the chance to sit down with one of the founders, Heather Ouida, to discuss their cause and their platform which launches in March.

The*gameHERs is a virtual and in-person community that connects all women gamers as well as those who identify as female, non-binary and their allies. They aim to be a space for the casual players, the hard core gamers, the techies, the streamers, the designers, the cosplayers, the developers and the programmers to advance the role, voice, image and power of all gameHERs in the gaming world. During the interview, Ouida explained how they chose their areas of focus as a community.
