Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

More. Colorful. Diablo!

One of the goals that has been discussed in the council room of GayGamer castle for some time has been sending out missives to all the clans and guilds that surround us and thrive in their respective worlds. The goal would be to have a massive scroll with all the guilds and clans who pledge to protect QUILTBAG folk and offer them a safe space to play.

What this means is I want people to email me. What should you email me? I want to know of guilds and clans that are either QUILTBAG-centric or QUILTBAG-friendly. Therefore, that email link should include the following information please:

Name of Guild:
Game/Server:
QUILTBAG-centric or QUILTBAG-friendly:
Time zone:
Guildmaster(s):
Contact for the guild:

The reason I would like the last is because I wish to survey the guild a bit. Is the guild sensitive to trans people? Is their makeup mostly men or women, and if so do they foster the opposite sex? Raiding guild? PVP guild? Just casual, get-together-and-shoot-the-shit guild? These little details.

What will result is a list of guilds and clans, where to find them, and if they hold particular interest to people. The reason I have included QUILTBAG-friendly is because it's a big world, and some of you have surely found awesome clans and guilds that will allow us to coexist as much as create our own spaces.

Also, while I am aware of Proudmoore in WoW, treat this as if I know nothing of your game. With more and more games becoming free to play, or starting that way (League of Legends for instance), it might just be a list that could be used to find out a new game you wish to try.

So, email me.

P.S. When Diablo 3 releases, I expect something of this nature to be formed. Let it be so.

Great idea. :) I was thinking about this very thing today, as well as talking to a few friends about safe/friendly/non-bigoted places to play at for being a woman and/or QUILTBAG.

I look forward to seeing how this goes.

This... abbeviation has gone beyond "ridiculous" and into "embarassing to be a part of".

Seconding 12thGay on that one.

Well, I wanted it to be inclusive of people who might also be asexual, questioning, intersex, et cetera. The alphabet soup as a word that acknowledges that worked for me, sorry it doesn't for you.

That is not the point of this post, however. As I don't want this to devolve into the merits of using QUILTBAG I'm going to respectfully ask that this not turn into such.

I really had no idea what you were talking about until you referenced proudmoore in WoW. Even then I'm still not sure. Is it a community crafting guild of some kind?

A little standard Journalism 101 for you. When you use an acronym in a story you should define it the first time you use it.

Because its not as if MMO's or MMOFPS's or MMORPG's etc. are exactly lacking in mysterious acronyms.

I still don't know what QUILTBAG stands for, but I agree with patrick in that I have an idea of what you mean when you mentioned Proudmoore in WOW but still not entirely sure.

I'm curious to find what gay-friendly guilds/clans exist in MMORPGs outside of WOW as I have since burned out on WOW and looking for a new game that offers some social interaction.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
