Intimates: Pride Month and Video Games

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context.

This week, Elliot and Cameron close out Pride Month with a chat about the gaming industry and how it has shown its support across the month to help celebrate the LGBTI+ community. But is this just pink washing from some companies and show would expect more? Or is a show of support still an honest and good thing to do in an industry still fuelled by toxicity?
