Gay cartoonist Eric Orner (The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green) and Jay Laird of Metaversal Studios will be releasing an online Flash game to coincide with this year's Gay Pride Celebrations in NYC and SF. The game is called Stonewall Brawl and is based on the historical Stonewall Riots that gave birth to the Gay Rights movement. The gameplay hearkens back to the old side scrolling brawlers like Streets of Rage and Ninja Gaiden (early
titles for the game included "Streets of Drag" and "Ninja Gayden").
Orner and Laird hope that the launch of the game will educate younger LGBT folks on the events that led to the whole reason we are able to celebrate Gay Pride today. The game is set to launch on June 22nd on Metaversal Studios' Burning Village website.
