We want to be clear; June isn’t the only time we #LIVEPROUD. Year-round, Evil Geniuses celebrates the LGBTQ+ community through specialized programing, charitable initiatives, and more.
Yet, when PRIDE Month rolls around, we want to join in on the party. Check out some of our mainstay programs and PRIDE-specific activations happening this June.
The LIVEPROUD PODCAST
As always, LIVEPROUD provides members of our community the microphone to discuss important issues in esports and gaming. Episode 9, launching this month, will spotlight LGBTQ+, Transgender, and Non-Binary folks in the industry to continue the conversation. Host Erin Ashley Simon and guest Amanda Stevens, DEI Manager at Enthusiast Gaming, and Gillian “Kendryx” Langland, Chief Operating Officer of Queer Women of Esports, will celebrate Transgender & Non-Binary Pride.
