It's great to see that some of our readers are helping build their own community. Congratulations to the Toronto GayGamers group (every one of whose meetings I have shamefully missed) not only for being awesome, not only for marching in next week's million-strong Toronto Pride Parade, but also for getting themselves in the news! Awesome work guys. From the article:
The group started in 2007, when Toronto visitors to the game website GayGamer.net decided to meet-up in person at Toronto Island. Eventually, the group evolved into a meet-up to play video games but, while the name may suggest otherwise, it isn't only for queer game enthusiasts. Rather, the emphasis is on providing a queer-positive safe space, and gamers from all backgrounds are welcome.
I know some of the people who run the group, and it couldn't be in better hands. Read more about them at the Torontoist.
