Pride month: How gaming hardware brands are showing support

Pride month is just in (June). Here’s how the top gaming hardware brands (and gaming brands in general) are showing their support and helping spread awareness for the cause.

The pride month marks an important cause. We need to promote the self-affirmation of the LGBTQ community and make the world a friendlier and safer place for everyone’s benefit. Pride is the opposite of stigma and shame. Let’s lend a hand and spread the awareness.

This is how Twitch is celebrating the LGBTQIA+ creators that show up live on the platform without fear.

They’ve also featured the platform’s leading LGBTQ+ creators to look out for.

Meanwhile, SteelSeries has launched limited edition celebratory speaker plates for pride. These are Arctis Pro Speaker plates (compatible with Arctis Pro, Arctic Pro + GameDAC, as well as Arctic Pro Wireless) and all the earnings will go to the Trevor Project, a leading organization that provides suicide prevention services to the LGBTQ youth.

Lydia has not always been fascinated by games especially when they include gruesome violence. But she’s always been infected with the bug of strategy gaming. Competitive strategy gaming? Now that’s just way better. She likes to stream her misplays often on Twitch. Her specialization on Spearblade includes the news section.
