Returning for its fourth year, the Gayming Awards will head out to California, debuting at the Margaritaville Resort in Palm Springs on April 7th 2024.

This year, more of the nominations and voting will be opened to the public in a continued quest to seek out and celebrate LGBTQ+ games and names in the industry.

Robin Gray, the creator of the Gayming Awards, said: “I’m so thrilled that the impact and reach of the Gayming Awards continue to grow, and this move to Palm Springs shows that we want to keep carving out our space in the global games industry as we come to its spiritual home in California. I’m also delighted that the nomination and voting process is being expanded further to drive forward our mission of equity and inclusion by devolving power to the LGBTQ+ gaming public.”

In a drive to further increase the celebration of diversity and inclusion of nominees, the Gayming Awards has also revealed the launch of a Community Diversity Council headed up by Raffy Regulus from NYC Gaymers. This council will sit alongside the production team of the 2024 Awards with a mission to focus on inclusion and equity for nominees and attendees.

In the lead-up to the big event, gaming fans can nominate – and then vote on – their favorite games and names across 10 categories. Nominations are now open at and close on November 24th.
