Hot off the heels of the Gayming Awards, we look to celebrate Pride through DIGIPRIDE 2023 – an online event that runs from May through July right here on Gayming Magazine and across Twitch.
Instead of just one singular month of Pride, we dare to ask the question: what about three?
You can expect a variety of different events throughout May to July, such as DIGIPRIDE panels, special episodes of Let’s Go Gayming, special episodes of Gayming Podcast Live, and much more to be revealed as the event goes on.
Alongside exciting events, you can expect exclusive ‘money can’t buy’ competitions, reviews, features, and interviews here at Gayming Magazine.
DIGIPRIDE is proudly presented by Healthysexual, Wizards of the Coast, and Xbox, and sponsored by Devolver Digital and Marvelous Europe.
Below you’ll be able to see ‘What’s On’ throughout the three months of DIGIPRIDE 2023.
