As New York City hosts WorldPride and marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, this year’s Graffiti Games will honor the voices, talent and impact of LGBTQ community in gaming and the importance of creating a safe space for all to be their authentic selves.

“The Graffiti Games are such a special part of Play NYC because they provide a unique platform for developers to flex their creative muscles and share their personal stories with the world,” said Dan Butchko, Playcrafting’s founder and CEO and organizer for Play NYC. “We’re especially excited about this year’s theme because Playcrafting gets to show its support for these dynamic developers from the LGBTQ community’s efforts to promote inclusivity through games and in their everyday lives. Playcrafting is beyond honored to join NYC in commemorating this important moment for the city and the greater LGBTQ community.”
