Video game live-streamers — and those who watch them — gather at TwitchCon in Long Beach – Los Angeles Times

By all accounts, Katie Upshall leads an ordinary life back home in Newfoundland, Canada.

But when she arrived in Long Beach to attend TwitchCon, the annual confab of video game streamers, the 24-year-old found herself the center of attention signing autographs.

“You’re Proxy!” passing fans said.

PmsProxy is her handle, to be exact, and she boasts 108,000 followers to her Twitch account. Upshall belongs to a subgenre of video-game role-playing, in which she inhabits a character on “Grand Theft Auto Online.”
