Gayming Magazine was invited to take part in a panel as part of PAX Community Con – a Discord-based stand-in run by PAX community fans.
Titled “Lessons Learned from Creating LGBTQ+ Communities”, the panel was hosted by Mevin from Boston Gaymers and he was joined by Robin (Gayming Magazine), Cerberus (LGBTQ+ Lounge Discord) and Lombax (Gay Geeks community).
Discord, online magazines and other social media has brought cities, regions, and the world closer together through gaming events and online communities. LGBTQ+ Communities have grown from small groups just meeting once every few months to ones that range in the hundreds to thousands. It has been a long road for many of these communities and they have had a variety of experiences.
The members of each organisation briefly shared their experience with their communities and then expanded into a group talk with Q&A from the live audience on Discord and Twitch.
Thanks to Boston Gaymers, LGBTQ+ Lounge and Gay Geeks for permitting the use of this audio for this The Gayming Podcast Special!
