Ottawa – On February 2nd 2014, locally-initiated group Capital Geek Girls is officially launching its online blogazine with a kick-off party hosted by FutureShop Merivale. Videogames played on the big screen TVs after hours will be the main activity, and guests can meet the editor, authors, and other Capital Geek Girls supporters.
CapitalGeekGirls.com is a fanclub that works to further the inclusion of girls and women in geeky pursuits (eg videogames, comic books, sci-fi, fantasy, Magic the Gathering, boardgaming, etc). CGG began after numerous reports of harassment, bullying, and exclusion of women in the geek world. The club began one year ago, run entirely via its Facebook page, by local author and geek Jordan Danger. The group grew quickly in popularity and will now offer its own online blog/magazine (blogazine). The launch party, hosted by FutureShop on Merivale road, kicks off the blogazine’s inception.
