Gayming Magazine – the dedicated magazine for the LGBTQ+ gaming community – is launching a live event called Gayming Live.
The first event of its kind in the UK, Gayming Live will take place between September 30 and October 5, with a series of events at a pop-up shop in Great Windmill Street, Soho, London. Gayming Magazine says that it will include: “Gayming radio shows, an industry mixer, a Pride Run preview and competition, career advice, video game art, a games writers lounge, Ginny Lemon’s 8-bit Drag Show and more.”
Gayming Magazine says: “A dedicated Gayming radio show will also take place throughout the week, with all the events and initiatives throughout Gayming Live designed to bring the community together and replicate the ethos and fun of the magazine itself.” Magazine founder and editor Robin Gray adds: “Gayming Magazine has gone from strength to strength since we launched just three months ago – exceeding our own expectations. We’re delighted to be hosting the Gayming Live event, which will take all the great elements of the Magazine and make them truly interactive.”
Gray continues: “Gayming Live is designed to appeal to gamers, industry professionals and those looking for a career in games. This is a very exciting and unique event – and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!”
