CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS OF THE 2022 GAYMING AWARDS!

The Gayming Awards returned for a second outing last month, featuring a live event in London which was also watched by over 320,000 people via Twitch and IGN.

The first and only global ceremony celebrating LGBTQ+ video gaming and queer geek culture, the awards were expanded for 2022 to include Comic Books, Esports and Tabletop Gaming.

The Gayming Awards also featured an in-person exclusive nerdy drag pre-show featuring London’s iconic Cybil’s House starring Cybil War, Aubrey Wodonga, RhyssPieces, Lolo Brow and Shardeazy Afrodesiak. 

And 20% of all ticket sales went to the It Gets Better Project to support its mission to uplift, empower, and connect LGBTQ+ youth around the globe.
