Queer Inclusion in Gaming

Happy Pride! While things are still rockin' and rollin' with escrow, I wanted to take the time to really celebrate the number of gaming and tech companies that took a stand for pride this year.

Whatever the reason, it gives me gaymer pride to see other queer folks and allies getting so much support from the community that they love. Here are some of my favorite nerdy/gaming pride sightings from this year:
