New queer-centric print publication Gayming Magazine is hitting UK stores on June 1st.
Gayming Magazine was unveiled at the London Games Festival earlier this month and wants to platform writers and perspectives from across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. The publication is aiming to bridge the gap between queer communities and the games industry.
"I'm so excited for everyone to see Gayming Magazine in June," said Gayming Magazine founder Robin Gray. "For too long, the LGBTQ+ community has sat on the fringe of the video games community, carving out their own niche.
“We want to celebrate that niche while also working with the community and with the industry to bring the two halves closer together, ensuring LGBTQ+ people feel welcome, included and represented within the gaming world they adore so much."
The last year has been rocky for print publications in the UK, with Future shutting down longtime favourites like GamesMaster and GamesTM. On the flipside, however, magazines like Wireframe have found success in development-heavy writing. If Gayming pays off, it may prove the future of magazines is in laser-targeting new, unexplored niches.
