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. While there isn’t exactly a treasure trove of gay-themed video games hitting the market, that doesn’t mean there isn't plenty to discuss in the world of gay gaming, from LGBTQ characters in some of the latest big releases to queer storylines and Easter eggs. There are so many different video games online and in stores that everyone is bound to find something they love to play. Regardless of what kind of virtual experience you’re seeking, you can find your own niche in the wonderful world of gay gaming.
The representation of LGBTQ+ characters and storylines in video games has increased in recent years, although it is still an area that needs improvement. There have been some positive developments, including the inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters as playable characters and non-playable characters, as well as the inclusion of LGBTQ+ relationships and storylines in games.
However, there is still a lack of diverse and well-developed LGBTQ+ representation in many video games. This can lead to harmful stereotypes and a lack of visibility for LGBTQ+ individuals in the gaming world.
There has been a push for increased representation and inclusion of LGBTQ+ individuals in the gaming industry, including the creation of LGBTQ+-friendly gaming communities and events, and advocacy for better representation of LGBTQ+ characters in video games.
Gaymers is a term used to describe LGBTQ individuals who are also gamers. This term encompasses a diverse community of people who share a love for gaming and also identify as part of the LGBTQ community. Gaymers can be found across all types of gaming platforms and genres, and they bring a unique perspective to the gaming world.

Here are some popular LGBTQ+ characters in video games:

I'm kinda the opposite, I usually have 3-4 games on rotation and when I get bored of one I kinda just switch to another. lol As of now tho Elden ring has sunk its claws into me and isn't letting go 😂
Well thats fine, I think everyone has their processes for playing games, and tbh some games take forever to get achievements and trophies for 100% completion.
That's alright, I'm already familiar with FromSoft's Soul range and armament range system, its similar to what they've used in their other games like Bloodborne or Dark souls. I usually with my husband, so we are normally within 10 levels of each other and weapon ranking as well. I appreciate you looking out and helping with the knowledge though. 🥸
Does anyone here play Soulsborne/RPG, or MMO type games like Elden Ring or FF14? Currently play Elden Ring, FF14, and Destiny 2 on PS5. Also playing Back4Blood and just picked up Evil Dead if anyone wants to play?
Does anyone know any good ways to stream A nintendo Switch to PC? I've been wanting to start streaming but.. havent really gotten about to doing so.
That’s a very fair point bc I’m typically the same way with open world games Rex but for some reason I found apex fun also Rafael that makes sense I mean I would say one thing some of the legends(Characters to play with) are very relatable and some voice lines are so adorable and loving
I think it’s a great game. It is easy to pick up. What other switch games if any do you guys play?
HEYY y’all I just finished billing my PC I play Fortnite dead by daylight gentian impact and much more I’m starting to stream on twitch
If you wanna give me a follow
bad_karma252 is my Twitch user and when I’m life I’ll let y’all know and if you guys play these games you guys can join me
Nice! Ive heard nothing but good things from my community members about Elden Ring. Its been everything that they’ve sought in a souls game! Ive personally dont play, but the hype seems to be deeply deserved. Whats been your favorite aspect of it? Im personally addicted to Lost Ark atm - as someone whose waited for a long time its been everything i wanted!
I’m kinda a one game guy. I like playing one thing until I’m done, then I typically don’t play anything for months at a time. I probably haven’t turned on my PS5 in eight months. 😮
I am curious for those who play fallout 4 is there any character in the game that you will refuse to kill no matter what type of playthru you were playing
It’s tons of fun. Honestly, i put the video and audio settings to Kurosawa mode and had a blast! But i don’t know anyone else who played it like that. They’re all like “why would you want to play a game in black and white?”
yeah apex does that to you it’s stressful but i have a love hate relationship with the game and omgg yess i love borderlands 3, which one is your fav relic? and yeah are used to play on switch so I know how it feels
Currently playing elden ring on ps5 just wrapped up horizon forbidden west and then bout to play the Jurassic world evolution again after they drop this new dlc for the movie lol
Just got back into playing Tales of Vesperia and Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Have also picked Destiny 2 back up for a bit. Have mainly played Destiny by myself however would be nice to play with someone.
As a younger sibling, I got used to watching my brother play when we were kids. There are definitely certain games that he was better at playing, but I got to experience them since I would just watch him play. Like I’m terrible at action and stealth games, but my brother is good at them. Lol
Like a Dragon is a great game to play. Unless you care for the story of it all, you might wanna play from the beginning. but Like a Dragon was my second game of the series and I was still able to follow along pretty well.
Does anyone else find more joy WATCHING someone else play certain video games rather than playing them? Keyword “certain” games lol I find that the more visually appealing the more I want to sit back and take it all in.
Does anyone play Pokémon unite? I have recently connected with the game again after taking a long break. I’m at a point where I’m in need of consistent, capable players to move up the ranks. By no means am I the best, but it would be nice to have a consistent team.
Dang. I never was really able to play Xbox growing up bc my brothers so I suck at all games and it’s hard to find people to play with bc they say they don’t want to “carry” me. But my partner doesn’t mind so much lol and we only have 1 Xbox
Mostly single player long stories, such as God of War, Horizon, Ghost of Tsushima, Assassin’s Creed and such. Played FFXIV and Destiny 2 for a long time but got tired and stopped. Looking for a new multiplayer to play. Didn’t find anything I actually enjoyed so far.
ohh lol i mean i play it sometimes but i love playing roblox and just playing scary games
Oh cool! Well if you ever are on and wanting to play with some, let me know!
I really want to get into this game more but I’m kinda bad at making friends with people online.
I plan on selling my Switch to a friend but in the meantime, I’ve been thinking about playing Life is Strange. I definitely want to play True Colors but is it worth it to start from the beginning?
Very much! I loved the game when it came out and fell off due to some mechanics. I’m hoping the leveling changes can keep me a little more consistent, though I already suspect the integrated crossplay will do that (allowing me to finally play with people I know, whom all seem to play on PS)
What are y’alls favorite type of game to play mine is Fantasy/apocalyptic
Lol I just never used it so I was waiting for the holidays n idk what games to play I’m new to pc gaming n steam
If I get an Xbox soon wanna play with me. I’m not good at games but I enjoy them and my commentary is funny
I play Fortnite, Dead by Daylight, Minecraft or any game that catches my eye, I am on PlayStation
I play Fortnite,Minecraft and other fun games
