Summer of Pride 2020, the second annual month-long celebration of LGBTQ+ diversity in games, wrapped up its Twitch streams, as well as sales on Steam and the Nintendo Switch eShop, raising more than $25,000. The money was donated to Trans Lifeline, The Trevor Project, GaymerX, and The Bail Project in partnership with more than 70 diverse streamers and 40 developers and publishers.
Adding a charitable component for the first time this year, MidBoss surpassed its own goals and expectations mid-month while spotlighting creators and media with positive LGBTQ+ representation in characters and storylines.
In addition to donating 100% of its cut from games bought from the Summer of Pride charity storefront during the month of June, MidBoss has made the online shop permanent and will continue to donate all its proceeds year-round.
“The success of Summer of Pride 2020 proves there is a strong demand for positive LGBTQ+ representation in games and to hear from queer content creators around the world,” said Cade Peterson, CEO of MidBoss. “We look forward to continuing Summer of Pride annually, making it a bigger and better event each year.”
