LGBTQIA+ streamers like UrbanBohemian, DEERE, JeffBrutlag and Miabyte will play games featuring representation of queer characters, themes, and stories in marathons on weekends throughout July. Funds raised from these streams will support charities The Trevor Project, Trans Lifeline, Minus 18, Mermaids UK, GaymerX, Black Girls Code, Women in Games International, and Girls Who Code. MidBoss, developer and publisher of LGBTQ-themed titles like 2064: Read Only Memories and Kitsune Tails, organized the event, and will livestream and re-host partnered streamers on the MidBoss Twitch Channel throughout the month. Season of Pride 2022 aims to build on the success of Season of Pride 2021, which raised just under $30,000 for charity, and amassed more than 21 years of viewership of LGBTQ+ streamers and games.

"We are so grateful to host another Season of Pride to shine a spotlight on all the great LGBTQIA+ games and content creators and to support the mission of some great causes," said Cade Peterson, CEO of MidBoss. "Donate early, donate often! Add some games to that backlog and feel good about it!"
