At Cloud9, we believe gaming is for everyone regardless of sex, gender identity, or orientation. As we continuously aim to be better LGBTQIA+ allies every year, we are excited to share our 2022 initiatives and activities to continue uplifting and empowering underrepresented and marginalized groups in our space.
This year, all profits from the Cloud9 Pride collection will be evenly donated between the LA LGBT Center, Trans Lifeline, and Ali Forney Center, all organizations that work towards providing resources and creating safe spaces for those in need. The 2022 collection features old favorites and new additions with the option to add a tie-dye kit for a fun, creative twist!
We are also thrilled to reopen applications for the Cloud9 Training Grounds Pride Scholarship in partnership with HyperX! As Training Grounds is dedicated to creating more pathways and opportunities to diversify our community, three scholarship award winners will be selected for free enrollment to a camp of their choice plus a set of HyperX peripherals.
Finally, we will have a C9 Spotlight & Charity Stream Series throughout June! Every week on our social channels, Cloud9 will feature an organization that is committed to fostering better environments for the LGBTQIA+ gaming community. Our very own Cloud9 streamers, Avril, Depths, and EmZ, will each be hosting a charity stream in support of the highlighted organizations.
As always, we want to hear from you! Connect with us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Discord to let us know what else you would like to see and how we can continue our efforts in supporting the LGBTQIA+ community.
