TAY Theme Week: Injustice 2's Gear System Was a Major Let-Down TAY Theme Week: Injustice 2's Gear System Was a Major Let-Down

Growing up being gay and into video games is an interesting sort of purgatory. While there were certainly many other interests I could’ve taken up that would’ve been far less accepting of my sexual orientation, gaming as a form of creative expression lacked any of the gay characters—let alone role models—that seemed…

Hey TAY! I wasn't around at all last week, so I didn't really see if anything happened, but... did we really not have one of these for a while? This is still a thing, right?
