Eight years ago today, I posted on this blog about Proudmoore Pride, a pride event taking place in World of Warcraft. You can see the original video I posted above or check out the blog post.
June is LGBTQ Pride month, but there’s another reason why I’m reposting this. Today the video received a comment that read “We play games to get away from reality. Don’t bring your gay ass or race into this. Grow up.” And yesterday in Battle for Stromgarde, another player said something along the lines of “that old f****t is up” talking about Danath Trollbane, an NPC in the game. That language isn’t cool, and if you’re upset about people celebrating Pride in game, you need to rethink your opinions.
