LacunaCon: A Tabletop Event for Women & LGBTQIA+

an unfilled space or interval; a gap.

showing fearlessness and determination.

LacunaCon is the first Philippine event in which women and LGBTQIA+ tabletop game masters come together to explore their narratives. It’s a space to tell these stories and bring these to both the immediate community and others who seek to understand those experiences.

The theme for #LacunaCon2019 is “Dauntless”. We have lit the first fires and sounded the beacon. We have our space, we have our dice at a ready. And we know that there are so many of us who want to improve our community by carving out more spaces for us to be ourselves. Now we’re out to show everyone who we are and what we’re about. Organized by Play Without Apology in partnership with Gamers and GMs Philippines, LacunaCon carves out and expands the safe space to promote visibility and inclusivity for all.

Workshops & Talks

Are you ready to play?

This year, #LacunaCon2019 is pleased to bring you games that explore worlds that are beautiful, broken, and enchanting! Games start at 4PM!

The Organizers

Play Without Apology is a website and network dedicated to gaming, fandom, and real-world issues that affect both geeks and gamers. We are brute force honest about trying to rise above the noise of usual pop culture, geek, and fandom media. We talk gameplay and graphics and kick-tastic gaming experiences and draw more from it—academic, emotional, and artistic.

“Play Without Apology” because it’s about embracing who we are. This is how we play.

Gamers & GMs Philippines is a volunteer events planning group dedicated to promoting tabletop role-playing games. We believe that storytelling games have tremendous power, from fostering creativity to increasing empathy in our communities.

Let us play and learn together!
