I went to PAX on a whim.  I had the money for a ticket at the last minute, I could take the time off work, a free place to crash, and I had friends going.  And I guess my biggest beef with PAX is that other folks I’d like to see at PAX (more minorities) don’t have the privilege that I have to afford a ticket/crashpad/travel.  And it sucks, because the panel about diversity wasn’t very diverse, and the gender panels I went to were interesting but not inspiring.  The speakers were all great, I gained some fresh perspectives, but I was still bummed about being one of the very few visibly queer women in all of PAX.  Granted, queer comes in all shapes and sizes, but PAX doesn’t.
