It’s only a short time until the 2023 Gayming Awards, with our Broadway debut in New York set to wow and dazzle on April 18. But before we can dazzle you all an appropriate amount, why don’t you sit back and explore the award show’s many categories and the nominees that have been chosen?
For the Gayming Awards 2023: Best LGBTQ Tabletop Game of the Year Award, we look to recognise the best tabletop game or supplemental released in 2022 with LGBTQ themes. That can be something as big as having a whole supplement focused around an LGBTQ+ storyline, or something as small as a list of LGBTQ+ NPCs that are ready to join your adventure. No matter what it is, we’re looking to celebrate it!
This year’s line-up remains solid, with a combination of supplemental content that’ll have your heart crying out for joy, as well as general tabletop games and adventures, and a whole lot more.
To celebrate the Gayming Awards 2023, check out all our nominees voted in by the public, and what they had to say about them.

The topics range from an in-depth look at the gods and other pantheons of Golarion, analysis and commentary on the world’s nations, as well as supplements for other Pathfinder adventurers.
