June 2019 will kick off the Summer of Pride, a month long stream celebration of LGTQIA games, developers, and streamers. The stream will be hosted by the MidBoss, developers behind the game 2064: Read Only Memories. The stream can be found on the MidBoss Twitch channel.
The Summer of Pride promotes games that feature positive representation of marginalized perspectives and the diverse devs that create the games. The games that will be included in the stream are Gone Home, Tacoma, 2064: Read Only Memories, Another Lost Phone, Dominique Pamplemousse, and Even The Ocean.
“We don't just make LGBTQIA+ games and media. MidBoss now, as a business mission, aims to promote and support diverse games and their developers in every way possible," said Cade Peterson, interim CEO, MidBoss. “By partnering with streamers from across the gender, sexuality, and PoC spectrums, we’re also highlighting talented individuals who want to generate discourse about these topics by engaging with representative games for their audiences.”
Based out of San Francisco (although not the Neo kind), MidBoss aims to make the world better, safer and more inclusive for marginalized people, especially those across the gender and sexuality spectrum, by creating cool experiences through games and other forms of media which diversify representation, as well as becoming a platform for queer content around the world.
