San Francisco developers MidBoss are set to begin a month-long celebration of the LGBTQIA+ presence among games, developers, streamers, and creators in the gaming industry on their Twitch channel on June 1.
The 2064: Read Only Memories developers will host the event and showcase a selection of games featuring queer stories and content creators within the community, with titles including Dragon Age: Inquisition, Gone Home, Tacoma, Life is Strange, and many more. On camera will be streamers Nikatine, Deere, and creator 8-Bit Dylan, among others. They will offer their own perspectives on representation within the gaming community and their experiences. MidBoss hopes to give a spotlight and platform to the growing LGBTQIA+ community within gaming and provide a space for voices to be heard.
