Gayming Live 2019 coming to London!

We are proud and excited to announce that Gayming Magazine is hosting a week-long LGBTQ video game event series later this month – the first of its kind in the UK.

Sponsored by Chappy, Green Man Gaming’s Pride Run and Fusebox Games – and supported by Ditch The Label, Jägermeister, Soho Radio and Magic Notion – Gayming Live will take place from September 30th until Saturday October 5th, with a series of events taking place at the Jäger Soho pop-up shop in Great Windmill Street, London.

A dedicated Gayming radio show will also take place throughout the week, with all the events and initiatives throughout Gayming Live designed to bring the community together and replicate the ethos and fun of the magazine itself.

“Gayming Magazine has gone from strength to strength since we launched just three months ago – exceeding our own expectations,” said Founder & Editor Robin Gray. “We’re delighted to be hosting the Gayming Live event, which will take all the great elements of the Magazine and make them truly interactive.

“Gayming Live is designed to appeal to gamers, industry professionals and those looking for a career in games. This is very exciting and unique event – and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!”
