I'm looking for a few interested tech-heads, game geeks, and dungeon masters! You! Yes, and you too!
For a venture I'd like to try: an LGBT friendly (though, to be clear, by no means strictly LGBT FOCUSED) gaming site.
News. Reviews. Editorials. Tech suggestions. Guides, how-tos, and more. I would like to offer what is, on its surface, a fun amateur gaming web site (think Rock Paper Shotgun or PC Gamer minus the budget,) but with an underlying core of features designed to cater to LGBT gamers and the LGBT gaming community, from game recommendation lists customized based on appeal to certain sexual or gender orientations to emotional support and lists of LGBT-friendly servers, pro teams, and game developers.
There are a lot of tech and gaming web sites out there. Really, a LOT. This is NOT going to turn a profit, it is NOT going to make you famous, and it is NOT going to ever result in any of us seeing our reviews change the face of Metacritic, and so long as you keep all that in mind you'll never be disappointed (even if I'm wrong!) What it WILL be is fun, informative, and a great way to build a community that can unite around one of the most wondrous things in the entire world: being a total goddamn nerd.
So... if anyone is interested, PM me here or even simply post a comment on this thread. We can organize a Skype chat or something to hash out the details, and if I feel like we've got a chance, I'll put up the money to get us going. If not, well, it'd still be fun to think about, right?
