Summer of Pride, a season-long streaming celebration of LGBTQIA+ games, developers, and streamers, is underway on the MidBoss Twitch channel.
MidBoss, developer of the inclusive cyberpunk adventure 2064: Read Only Memories, is hosting a month-long festival putting the spotlight on queer games and content creators. Throughout the month, streamers are playing games with LGBTQIA+ themes and storylines, sharing and celebrating queer narratives through the lens of their own personal experiences as members of the greater queer community.
Summer of Pride feature Dragon Age: Inquisition, Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, Life is Strange, Undertale, Night in The Woods, The Yawhg, Heaven Will Be Mine, and Ticket to Earth alongside the previously announced Gone Home, Tacoma, 2064: Read Only Memories, Another Lost Phone, and many more. The list of games has been curated to feature a variety of perspectives through high quality representation of queer characters and storylines.
Nikatine, Deere and SuperxInvader are joining popular content creator 8-Bit Dylan in streaming the games. These and other LGBT streamers will share their perspectives, discussing queer and other diverse content creators’ place in the gaming community alongside the importance of diverse representation in media.
“We’ve been able to organize an amazing event by working with people and companies who are just as passionate about promoting LGBT voices and stories as we are," said Cade Peterson, interim CEO, MidBoss. “Now that summer and Pride season have finally arrived, we hope to see a big turnout for the celebration.”
A full list of games, streamers, and the schedule is available now on the Summer of Pride website.
