Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary

Dear Diary, I’ve had a lot going on in my life, so I have to say that these are the times when I really appreciate how quiet and relaxing things can be in Geneva. Sure, I have lots to do like pulling weeds, watering flowers and other general maintenance, but […]

E3 2015: 8BitHomo: Pixelated E3 Special

Hello Gaymers, E3 was a magical time so it is about that time that I give you a recap on what my experience was like there and my thoughts on some of the games I got my hands on! So many great games, but only so much time to talk […]

Wootini’s Weekly Video Podcast #230

I hope you don’t mind that I took last week off. I went away for the Fourth of July holiday to visit family, and so I didn’t have a whole lot to talk about when I got back. But now that I’m home again, I’ve seen a movie and played […]

Dear Diary, Even though it was the Fourth of July, it was a quiet week in Geneva. See, I keep forgetting that we don’t celebrate that holiday here. Pretty sure I remember forgetting last year, too. But I think there are fireworks coming later in the summer. Like, once a […]

Monstrous Identity: Monsters and their LGBTQ Fans

Megaman Legends reborn as Red Ash: The Indelible Legend

Waaaaay back in 2010 Megaman co-creator Keiji Infaune left Capcom and soon after, in 2011, highly anticipated Mega-titles like Megaman Universe and Megaman Legends 3 were cancelled.

Chaka Corn as Gamora

Meet Chaka Corn: San Francisco’s Gaymer Drag Queen!

Chaka Corn isn’t what most people think of when they hear the words ‘drag queen’. A hulking mass of huggable muscle, she’s serving body-ody-ody of a different sort. As an aspiring game designer and dedicated gamer, she’s more at home in cosplay than couture. The winner of Trannyshack’s 2014 Star […]

#LoveWins even in The Sims

This past weekend, you may have heard, same-sex marriage was made legal on the federal level in the United States. This huge victory for the LGBT community was rallied around the hashtag #LoveWins as folks celebrated perfectly timed Pride weekends. But why keep the celebrations limited to the real world?

FlameCon Cosplay Gallery!

Like any good convention, the first ever Flame Con had lots of awesome cosplayers. And of course, being an LGBT comic convention, there was plenty of crossplay as well. I loved the spartan who made his armor out of old Magic The Gathering cards (glad somebody found a good use […]
