There is a new magazine in town and it’s going to be the go-to online resource for the LGBTQ+ video game community.

Gayming Magazine will provide news, reviews and stories about the video game world and was first introduced last Thursday in London. This will be the first notable push within the video game world that will hopefully be a good news channel in the industry.

In the press release for Gayming Magazine, they mention that the industry is very “hetero-dominated, and most games adopt an “assumed straight” starting point for their characters.

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”.”

The Gayming Magazine with launch globally in June and will look at the video games world with a queer twist. 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.

“I’m so excited for everyone to see Gayming Magazine in June,” 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.”
