Steam has a Summer of Pride 2020 sale and event going on

By - | Views: 18,843

Summer of Pride, a month-long event featuring LGBTQIA+ streamers playing queer games has launched and developer MidBoss has arranged a Steam event to go with it.

Weirdly though, I tried on my Steam account and in a private browser and for me the event isn't listed anywhere on Steam. I only know of it due to being on the email list for MidBoss.

The event showcases a few upcoming titles like Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER, Lore Finder, N1RV Ann-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action, Volleyball Heaven and Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp - all of which plan to support Linux as well.

On top of that there's a few games on sale that also have Linux builds like Always Sometimes Monsters, Arcade Spirits, Gone Home, Tacoma, Ladykiller in a Bind and a few more.

"We want everyone experience the range of diversity bubbling just below the surface of gaming, whether that’s by getting hands-on with the games or watching a beautiful array of diverse streamers find pieces of themselves in the works of queer developers," said Cade Peterson, CEO MidBoss and developer of Read Only Memories, which organized the event.

Find the Summer of Pride 2020 Steam event here.

As for the other side of the event, they're having LGBTQIA+ inclusive games and Twitch streamers make content for 15 hours a day across a whole month. You can find the schedule here if it interests you with it pulling in over 70 streamers and over 60 games will be showcased during this time.

Quoting: NanobangOn the rare occasion someone tries to denigrate me for using Linux, I've found a phrase like, "Whatever, I just don't like being spied on by Windows." all that I ever need to say --- if I ever feel inclined to respond at all to such insecure bullies.

Yeah, when I did try to argue, it usually boiled down to that person not wanting to know or hear anything about Linux (not even that others might use it). Or they were people who didn't mind the telemetry in Win 10. Which is fine, if someone is happy with their operating system, why can't they just be happy with their operating system? I don't see why they feel it's necessary to attack or try to convert those who use a different one.

Oh well. Yes, I prefer it on GOL. If I'm ever called a stupid cunt here, I want it to be because I was being a stupid cunt, not because of my operating system choice.

I found those few who were most interested in talking Linux down were those that had tried it and didn't succeed. Kind of unrequited love...

Quoting: ZlopezIt's nice when everybody is talking about diversity and equality and the pride month is only for LGBTQIA+. I just find this funny :-D

What's funny about this? This isn't only for LGBT...

The Windows Power User problem is real.

It's really uncomfortable to learn that you don't really know anything about computers, you just know about Windows. When confronted by that lack of knowledge it's easy to lash out at the thing that highlighted it.

Unfortunately for us, the people that are most likely to try installing an OS are the Power Users.

Quoting: HoriStraight people insulting lgbt people, lgbt people insulting straight people
Windows users insulting linux users, linux users insulting windows users
etc, etc

I never ever heard anybody insult anyone with "You hetero!" (or whatever the heterosexual version of insulting homosexual might look like in English).

Closest thing I generally run into is either generalized expressions of frustration such as "Die, cis scum" or a heavy sigh followed by "I regret to inform you that the straights are at it again." Which isn't really the same, now is it?

So if I am white heterosexual I can celebrate the pride month?

If its someones birthday, you can still celebrate their birthday. However, it's considered not cool to make it about yourself.

Now, there's no hetero-white pride month, but honestly, the rest of the year is basically hetero-white pride.

Because I didn't saw anyone in the LGBT... happy, if I say I'm proud white heterosexual. For them I'm racist embracing the culture of enslavers, or at least this is what I see in most media today. People being banned or have to resign from organizations if they take this stance.

But I don't need any special month to be proud about myself. For me it's funny that somebody even needs this :-)
