Are you a “gaymer”? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Video games are playing an increasingly vital role for the LGBTQ community as they become a more and more established form of art and entertainment. No longer are video games just for straight guys; these days gay gaming is all the rage!
Gay gaming is taking over the world of RPGs, first-person shooters, even throwback arcade games. These games allow us to explore entirely new worlds and try on completely new characters. Men can be women in the virtual world, and vice versa. It’s escapism at its best. LGBTQ people isolated from the larger queer community can disappear for hours on end into their favorite game.
