Gayming Magazine, the world’s only LGBTQ video magazine, has today debuted a new look and feel for the two-year-old magazine as it readies itself for a new chapter.
Aimee Hart started at Gayming Magazine as its deputy editor in late 2019. Over the past two years, she has worked side by side with Gayming’s founder, Robin Gray, overseeing a period of rapid growth to today where the magazine reaches over 1 million people per month. Aimee now takes on the mantle of Editor-in-Chief, with a mission to drive the magazine forward broadening out from just video games and becoming the home of queer geek culture.
Alongside Gayming’s work as being the champion of queer video games and those that make them, but it will also be looking at comics, tabletop games, film, TV, queer fandom, IRL communities, esports, and mobile gaming.
In addition to the coverage and editorial work, Gayming Magazine is striving to be even more inclusive than it already is. Aimee explains:
“LGBTQ+ media and publications have always focused too much on the cis, white, skinny side of things and all it’s ever pushed is a feeling of inadequacy among other members and, to be frank, isn’t even remotely accurate of who makes up the LGBTQ+ community in the first place. I do not want Gayming to fall into that same hole. Gayming isn’t just cis, white, and skinny. Gayming is fat. Gayming is trans. Gayming is BIPOC. Gayming is for everyone.”
To mark this new beginning, Gayming Magazine has debuted a fresh new logo that moves away from the pure video game-inspired one that launched the magazine in 2019. Now, the new bold logo represents the future of Gayming. One that reflects everyone and can be tailored to fly the flag of the whole LGBTQ+ community through wonderful variations. The logo was developed by queer artist Emma Ensley and will be seen in a multitude of ways as the year progresses.
The relaunch of Gayming Magazine comes amidst a busy time for Gray Jones Media. In 2021, Gayming Magazine held the Gayming Awards, a global first in celebrating queer video game excellence which propelled the title into mainstream awareness. In addition, the launch of their fourth title Vacationer approaches this Fall and looks to make its mark in the queer travel world. Plus, Queer Forty, the online publication targeting the over forty LGBTQ+ market, continues to push editorial boundaries by addressing topical social issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community and has seen a 200% audience growth in the past 12 months.
