Gayming Magazine will be the go-to online resource for the LGBTQ+ video game community, providing news, reviews and stories about the video games world when it officially launches on 1st June
LGBTQ+ positivity is still a challenge in the video game world. The industry is very hetero-dominated, and most games adopt an “assumed straight” starting point for their characters, although there has been a notable improvement with some titles in recent years. Issues around homophobia in the mainstream video game player community have also been widely reported. Despite this, LGBTQ+ people enjoy video games and have built whole communities around being a “gaymer”.
Launching globally on 1st June, Gayming Magazine will be the conduit between the community and the industry. Providing news, reviews, features and more, Gayming Magazine will look at the video games world with a queer twist. The online magazine is available to preview now at www.gaymingmag.com and officially launches on Saturday 1st June with an exclusive competition with big prizes up for grabs – just in time for the beginning of Pride season, marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots!
Additionally, the Magazine’s focus will also be on bringing people together. Whether that is helping people connect with their local gaymer group, or by bringing the industry closer to the community through interviews and features on LGBTQ+ companies, developers or other notables.
With a diverse roster of writers and contributors from across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, Gayming Magazine promises to be an exciting companion website to the entertainment world.
Robin Gray, Founder of Gayming Magazine, said:
“For too long, the LGBTQ+ community has sat on the fringe of the video games community, carving out their own niche. We want to celebrate that niche while also working with the community and with the industry to bring the two halves closer together, ensuring LGBTQ+ people feel welcome, included and represented within the gaming world they adore so much.”
