The inaugural Gayming Awards, which was presented by EA Games and streamed exclusively on Twitch, have awarded Supergiant Games’ Hades its first Game of the Year.
Hades, Tell Me Why, and If Found… all led the way with two wins each at the Gayming Awards 2021, and most of the winners were chosen by an international judging panel of LGBTQ+ video game industry professionals. The LGBTQ Streamer of the Year Award and the Readers’ Award were decided by public vote.
“I am so proud to be able to say we have held the world’s first LGBTQ video game award show,” The Gayming Magazine founder and editor Robin Gray said. “2020 was truly a watershed moment for LGBTQ inclusion in games and to be able to celebrate it with everyone, although virtually, was amazing! Congratulations to all the winners, well done to all the nominees and thank you again to all our sponsors! See you in 2022!”
